Storyline

A moment of loneliness. A chance encounter at a bar. When Taylor (Makinna Ridgway) follows the clean-cut Wyatt (Quincy Newton) home to his RV, it seems like a good way to take her mind off her recent fight with her boyfriend. What begins as a good time starts seeming like a bad decision when Taylor awakens in the woods, far from civilization. Wyatt, it turns out, is a soil researcher, and as he leads Taylor deeper into the woods throughout his workday, the two bond over the lush Canadian landscapes. For Taylor, it is a journey of beauty and self-discovery-so why does it feel like a tragedy in the making? TAYLOR'S WAY is both a gorgeous film and a subtle one, swapping out the horror genre's reliance on gore for a general sense of unease. First-time director René Brar takes his time establishing the mood and toying with audience expectations. With stunningly natural performances, beautiful cinematography and an unrushed, hypnotic pace, TAYLOR'S WAY is a sophisticated twist on a ... Written by Calgary International Film Festival

Discovering yourself, your destiny, or your demise?
8 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

The unhurried and gorgeously filmed "Taylor's Way" has a breakout performance by Ridgeway (as Taylor), beautiful cinematography of the Canadian wilderness, and just enough tension (sexual, moral) to keep the viewer interested. Indeed, I was mesmerized by the film and hope that it is released on DVD so that I can see it again. The attractive Taylor opens the film after a fight with her boyfriend/significant other, ending up alone at a bar, seemingly using some pints of beer to help deal with some demons. Enter Wyatt, a clean cut, polite young man who approaches Taylor. At first Taylor rebuffs him but then his gentle charm wins her over. They end up spending an enchanting and chaste night together and she falls asleep in his RV. The next morning she wakes up in the wilderness.... As you see Wyatt slowly winning Taylor over, and you see her embracing the natural environment, you root for her self-discovery, while feeling a sense of uncomfortable foreboding. What is Taylor's destiny? What are Wyatt's intentions? A beautiful film, with complex themes, and some surprises for the viewer.
