First, I must say I have seen INGENUE more than once. I own the DVD and the companion book.
If you crave action-packed, big budget sci/fi movies with little to no actual plot, then move along. This is not the movie that you seek. If on the other hand you enjoy thought provoking, emotion provoking, well plotted, well written, well directed and well acted movies, then pop some popcorn, slip this DVD in and sit back. Keep tissues handy--just saying. I have seen this twice already; including its premier in the Indiana State Museum's IMAX theater. INGENUE is a tender and poignant story about a family thrust into an extraordinary situation. As they deal with the issues raised, they all learn something about themselves and grow from that. I especially liked the mother, she was so strong throughout, even though she didn't think she was. Kate Chaplin did a superb job drawing it all together.
But then, Ms. Chaplin had a great team to work with, including the talented David Kemp who composed the soundtrack. Mr. Kemp wrote the original music and used local, Central Indiana musicians and bands (Lowdown and Deadbeat Heroes) for the recording. He has a wonderful sense of musical timing, pairing just the right style of music and tone to add yet another layer of emotion to what Ms. Chaplin had already created visually and from her talent.
