Film Review: ‘Somewhere Slow’

Film Review: ‘Somewhere Slow’
An unhappy bulimic goes on the lam with a sexually confused Mormon drifter in “Somewhere Slow,” a mediocre journey of self-discovery from indie helmer-writer Jeremy O’Keefe. Although it reps a step up in production values from O’Keefe’s micro-budget debut, “Wrestling,” this tonally all-over-the-place drama fails to convince; the tic-filled lead performances don’t help, either. After touring second-tier fests, the pic opens Jan. 31 in limited release prior to VOD launch on Feb. 4.

Hiding her low self-esteem under a thick layer of pancake makeup, with bright lipstick calling attention to her artificially enhanced lips and toothy smile, the well-coiffed, 40-something Anna (Jessalyn Gilsig, “Glee,” “Vikings”) goes about daily life like a crazy-eyed automaton, her offbeat interactions and odd little-girl voice seemingly utterly out of synch with the people and situations she encounters. Anna is one year into a not particularly fulfilling marriage with the well-meaning but controlling Robert
