Daniel von Bargen,
Floating is the story of a young man's struggle to come of age during a violent period of emotional and financial bankruptcy. The film stars Norman Reedus as Van, a son shouldering the responsibility of his embittered father, with no one to nurture him through his own pain. Van's father is so engrossed in his own troubles that he fails to emotionally support his son. As Doug, Chad Lowe provides Van with friendship, but more importantly, with the knowledge that a "perfect life" isn't always what it seems. After Van and Doug engage in a crime spree that ends in tragedy, father and son finally come together for the first time to transcend mourning.Written by
One of the more realistic "coming-of-age" films I've seen. A well-acted film in which sympathetic and complex characters drive the story. There's nothing fancy here in way of cinematography, but anyone who enjoys films that handles heavy emotional issues in a nuanced, unforced way will find this film worthwhile. There's a very interesting "trick" that the film plays on you that makes you rethink the main character's perspective on the events at the very end of the film.
