Storyline

When Taryn, a Northern Irish runaway, finds herself in trouble in Ocean City, MD, she seeks refuge with her aunt and uncle in Baltimore. But Kim and Bill have problems of their own: they're trying to handle the end of their marriage gracefully for the sake of their daughter Abby, just home from her first year of college. A story of family revelations, people finding each other and letting each other go, looking for love where they've found it before and, when that doesn't work, figuring out where they might find it next.

Saw in Poland
10 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seems to be like a trend in American stuff right now. At least with the films I saw at the festival. Movies with non-actors. Some kinda realism stuff, ya know? This DEF had style and was feeling some of it. Music was pretty darn cool in spots. Some parts were "hella" slow. Some with the parents were pretty okay. but ya gotta know its a weird film. If this movie sounds like it's right up your alley, by all means go and watch it. But to me most people this movie will still be weird! No not bad, just weird!

I'm def interested in seeing this guys other films though. He has a "coolish" vibe going on.
