Expect the best from "Expectation"
7 October 2006 | by xenatorresSee all my reviews

"Expectation" opens to a beautiful and haunting melody from Aimee Wilkinson as her older sister, Adrienne Wilkinson, who plays "Girl" enters what would seem to be her home. Girl moves about the apartment, seeming completely at home.

In fact, Girl is in the home of a Wife and Husband, living as though she is the woman who belongs there.

She is lonely and obsessed with Husband, wanting to be the one he's married to. As far as she's concerned, she'd do a much better job of it.

It's impossible not to feel for Girl, who is so obsessed with something she can never have. It's painful to watch the depth of her loneliness.

Written and directed by Tracey Bradley (middle sister of Aimee and Adrienne Wilkinson), Bradley delivers a script with few words, but which says more in the silence than most two hour movies. The dialog that is in the movie is witty, funny and sharp. Bradley carves her script like an artist.

Equally as impressive is Bradley's skill as a director, as capturing the right visuals in this film is what makes it as powerful as it is.

Edited by Scott Bradley, Bradley's images are best presented to the viewer.

Adrienne Wilkinson and Jessica Johnson are perfect in their roles as Girl and Wife. Johnson delivers Bradley's humorous lines with bite and timing for the best comedic punch, while Wilkinson's eyes will both haunt and chill you, depending on the scene.

Austin Petersen as Husband was a bit flat, but was held aloft by the talents around him.

Expect the best from "Expectation" and one can only hope this family team will present another project to hungry viewers soon!
