Excellent
22 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The writing, cinematography, and actors' performances were brilliant. This was the first time I saw Joanne Kelly (Betty) in a film, and I was enthralled with her acting and her beauty. Kudos to Kim Levine (Director) who created an outstanding film! Kim's former career as a biochemist and then a playwright collide to create an attention grabbing, thought provoking movie. The film was set in rural Kentucky and there are beautiful shots of Kentucky farmland that create a 'calm' in the middle of a 'storm'. As the film progresses, the tension between morality and desperation builds … and the resulting emotions linger when one leaves the cinema.
