Sarah Duncliffe is pregnant and suicidal. She is married to a man she does not love, stalked by an abusive ex boyfriend, and haunted by a dead girl who stares at her with a bloated bluish face and sad, questioning eyes. After a mishap, Sarah is instructed by her doctor to stay in bed. Begrudgingly she does. That is, until a strange older man moves in next door. A man with black teeth and an odd habit of sneaking into Sarah's yard to steal weeds. Emboldened by curiosity, Sarah sneaks into her neighbor's yard - only to be locked inside a greenhouse. After she breaks a glass pane to escape, she cuts herself and faints. Sarah wakes and learns the neighbor had treated her wound with a strange herbal ointment and brought her to the hospital. Eventually Sarah gets up the nerve to introduce herself to her next door neighbor. They form a fast friendship and, when Sarah sneaks a look into his picture scrapbook, she discovers an amazing secret. He's the same age in nearly every picture - ... Written by
A well told story I would recommend without reserve.
I feel I need to preface this review of the movie BLESSID explaining the first day of shooting was at my home, specifically in our greenhouse in exchange for tickets for my family to the premier and my name in the credits (well sort of anyway, LOL). That being said, I have no financial interest in the movie success.
It was fun and interesting watching the crew at work setting up and working through the scene. There is so much work in planning and execution for every detail. Lights, camera, audio, all working around Rachel Kerbs to get exacting imagery to tell the viewer a convincing tale. The work obviously stayed focused throughout the entire production as the movie far exceeded my expectations. I was taken by how well the story flowed from scene to scene, a true testament to the collaboration between Producer, Storyteller Bob Heske and Director Rob Fitz. The lighting, photography, and the soundtrack all worked so well. I have a critical eye and the one thing that stuck with me was the fact no details were left uncovered or glossed over. The actors were convincing and natural throughout the film. The whole movie was buffed and polished. To the entire cast and crew I say, Bravo!
