Storyline

Cal and Aaron are two brothers whose relationship is clearly very troubled. Cal forms a friendship with a young man, Cassius, from a very different background (including the fact that he is African-American). When Aaron goads Cassius into a fight at a Christmas party, and Cal stands by his newfound friend, a series of events begins that exacerbates the tensions between the siblings into open hostility and finally, real conflict.

Excellent first feature.
13 June 2000 | by rmg-6See all my reviews

This film is not only a great first directorial effort, it's a solid, excellent film, well photographed and with some lovely touches. I saw it at the Florida Film Festival a while back, and I'm surprised that it hasn't had wider distribution. I hope Mr. Cianfrance is getting other opportunities to make films, perhaps with larger budgets. He seems to be a very talented guy, with confidence, subtlety, and maturity already evident in his work.
