A Decent Norman Rockwellish Version of Small Town America
14 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

I saw this reasonably well-filmed documentary at SXSW in Austin, TX. The young film makers have tried really hard to make a slice of life film about their small home town in Ohio. While the film is pretty, charming, and some of filming is quite good, it lacks the depth and critical edge necessary for solid documentary film making. I think that in filming their own home town, they were unable to really be objective.

The film takes an overly romanticized view of small town life focusing on the county fair, the barber shop, trick-or-treaters at Halloween, fishing trips, the local radio station and especially on the high school football team. There is no real sense of the problems and difficulties faced by small town America. There is no real story and they jump around without a single character or story to give the film a clear focus. Small town America faces serious economic and social problems, but you wouldn't know that from this Norman Rockwell Americana view. Also, at 90 minutes the film is a bit too long and at times just a bit too slow. The film has heart, but needs to dig deeper to deliver a story that hasn't been told many times before.
