Surprisingly good independent film by emerging talent
Went to this film with some reservations thinking it was a low budget first time effort, but was surprised at how professional and well-made it is. The payoff for every film is the ending and whether or not it moves me emotionally, and by the time I left the theater I was moved, almost to tears. The film is somewhat like "To Kill a Mockingbird" or "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" only original in it's own right. The director, Kat Candler, should be commended for her delicate, reserved treatment. Filmed on location in a house that looks just like the house from "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" only without the meat hooks, it was shot on DV and had it's premier at the Austin Film Festival 2000 were it played to packed audiences. Also noteworthy is the camera work of Jim Eastburn who has a great sense of composition. Hopefully we will see more work from these talented filmmakers in the near future.
