runs out of steam
24 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Stephannie lost her father and has relied on older brother Jonah. She's afraid of the waters and has attended summer camp with Jonah. It's the last summer for her and her friends Alysha, Candice, and Morgan. Steph reluctantly goes on a canoe trip with them after Jonah makes a switch to be their guide. One night, Morgan gets embarrassed with her crush Jonah and runs off. Jonah trips in the dark chasing her. The girls get lost while the unconscious Jonah gets worst and passes away.

It's a real indie with amateur actors. In that sense, this is pretty good for what it is. The girls are competent actors. The movie starts in a hazy dreamy summery way. The camera lingers on the girls a little too closely. The movie takes another step up. There is one solid emotional moment when Stephannie refuses to let go. However, I get the feeling that the script simply runs out of ideas. The girls are nicely drawn characters. The writing needs to take advantage but it doesn't get to the next level. Steph shouldn't be left alone like that. It's the dialog and the movie simply runs out of steam in the end.
