Speed of Life is a drama about a young man who's mother has died and who now has the unenviable task of caring for his father, a once brilliant professor who is now crippled by the onset of Alzheimers Disease and cannot perform any functions such as bathing, eating, or using the restroom on his own. They live in a loft in a drug-ridden borough of NYC. The film follows his attempts to care for his father, earn money, and go to school while meeting a young artist who also happens to be a drug addict.
Excellent film, from writing, acting, script, sets, camera work, etc. Realistic, moving. Scott Caan shows he has range beyond playing the stereotypical criminal and Mia Kirschner in a small but pivotal role excels as usual. The actor portraying the invalid father was phenomenal. A drama that is both depressing and uplifting, worth seeing for avid film watchers.
