Storyline

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 Anonymous

Moving, solid performances
12 October 1998 | by FeuerSee all my reviews

I thought this movie rocked, particularly the strong performances by Norman Reedus and others. A solid, subtle script that doesn't try too hard or get too far in your face, just takes you where you need to go.
