The small town struggle told from a unique perspective
15 April 2014 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Sydney Freeland has written and directed an incredible film in Drunktown's Finest. Set in a small native American town, Freeland carefully and cinematically weaves viewers in and out of the lives of three young people who are all struggling with the confinement of small town life in a Native American territory.

While the backdrop of the film might be decidedly niche given its Native American setting, the message to Drunktown's Finest is ultimately broad and very relatable to anyone who has ever undergone the struggle of trying to break free from the roots of a small town in order to find a better life for their family or find out who they really are. On the flip side, the film also relates to that person who is searching for his or her roots and wanting to know where they came from.

The writing and directing show us that Sydney Freeland is a true emerging talent. Her cinematic eye combined with her delicate and moving story telling ability draws you into the film from the first frame and never lets you go!

The character development is spot on and the acting is superb from the three lead characters right down to those who deliver just a single line. All in all, Drunktown's Finest is a film that grabs your heart, takes you on a fascinating ride and ultimately leaves you simply feeling good about being alive. How often can we say that after leaving the theater these days? If you like a good movie that stays with you long after the film is over....then you will LOVE Drunktown's Finest.
