While serving a two-year prison sentence for supposed drug dealing, twenty-six year old Garrett O'Hara found his politician father and media-conscious mother had all but disowned him. Upon his release, Garrett is determined to get his life back on track, but when his parents act as if nothing happened and insist Garrett return to a career he pursued only to please them, Garrett refuses, wanting to distance himself from the past and make a go of it on his own. When Garrett's teen-aged brother Noah has run away, and may be heading down a familiar path of self-destruction, Mr. and Mrs. O'Hara must seek help from the very son they once turned their backs on.

Very good, not what I expected
16 September 2007 | by GayBardSee all my reviews

Often independent films, especially those about drug dealers, etc., are histrionic and a little in your face and that's kind of what I expected. Instead this movie is a very deliberate, sensitive film that reveals itself slowly. The acting was also, for the most part, wonderful. Michael Cavanaugh as the father was really exceptional, very subtle and real. All the kids were good, especially Aaron Himelstein. Guillermo Diaz was charming and chilling and played it wonderfully subtly, I am very interested in following his career. Cy Carter was loathsome and very compelling. Even Vincent Grashaw was very good for a good looking leading man type. (And he is very good looking.) I understand that this was his first real movie and it will be very interesting to see how he develops. He has a great start here and it will be a surprise if his career doesn't explode, now.

The real revelation, however is Elaine Hendrix. My God, that woman can act.

This was the director's first full length movie and, besides a few minor jumps in logic, it is an exceedingly good effort. I eagerly await his next effort. This is your comment, you may delete or edit it.
