An interesting and moving film, just not in a sentimental way
26 February 2013 | by lsskingSee all my reviews

I try not to box independent films into single genres, and in this case that helped me enjoy the movie more as it unfolded. I happen to like movies that employ psychological drama, though others might consider it a ploy, because it's really the mind that defines so much of experience. But there is a mystery/thriller element here, too. The two main actors gave strong performances and the drama felt authentic. Having spent most of my life in the Northeast, I was reminded of the tough, dry exterior that men of that region often project, that belie what they might be going through inside. I was able to feel the protagonist's struggle even though the film does not enter into sentimental territory.
