A precocious boy and his jaded sister use their imaginative powers to escape a confining home-life, save their self-destructive mother from her charmingly manipulative boyfriend, and finally reinvent their world in a mind bending conclusion.Written by
Was the other reviewer even watching the same film? I think Half Life is nothing short of amazing. I saw it at its second screening at Sundance and was totally blown away. So were the vast majority of the people in the filled to capacity theater. This was a touching, human, wickedly funny, painfully honest, and visually amazing movie. I recommend it to everyone. The entire cast turned in some of the best and most inspired performances of their career, including the actor who played the little kid. Sanoe Lake makes up for Blue Crush a hundred times over with her fearless acting style. The cinematographer should win an award too.
