Storyline

Fourteen year old Henrietta--Henri for short--longs for everything she doesn't have. Looking down a road that turns bad instead of right, Henri and her mother Kate are forced to move in with her grandmother in a leaking shack on the edge of town. Henri is hell bent on finding a way out. At the same time, Henri meets a boy at school, Chat Turly, and becomes infatuated with his seemingly ideal wealthy family. Henri overlooks some of the curious behavior she witnesses at the Turlys', choosing instead to see what she wants to see as she tries desperately to become a part of the family. When Henri can no longer ignore the severe flaws in Chat's home life, she comes to appreciate what she does have in a new light. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Good Film - Terrible Technology
14 September 2004 | by commanderjim-2See all my reviews

Evergreen is a type of film that I particularly enjoy. It deals with the lives of people we might ignore or shun if we encountered them in the course of our own lives. Nevertheless, these people share aspirations and frustrations common to all humanity and the adversities they strive to overcome make such people fascinating.

Evergreen is well written and extremely well acted. The cast can't be faulted on any level. On the other hand, "Gas, Food, Lodging," a film that is, in many respects, similar is vastly superior to this one.

As an experiment with the potential to make movie distribution far more profitable than currently is the case, AMC has converted this film to digital technology and is "feeding" the film to its theaters via satellite. The resultant images are dark, murky and lacking in precise focus. My own large screen TV provides a much superior image and it is not "state-of-the art" technology.

I will not be seeing any more films that employ this crude technology. I'd rather wait for the DVD or, even, skip the whole experience.
