Thoughtful drama
4 October 2014 | by mediascribeSee all my reviews

It's a curiously engrossing drama that's arty and smart. The story and action builds slowly and peaks at the end when it should. And the stage play rehearsal scenes (in the middle of the movie) are very funny because they capture the madness, insecurities and backstage intrigues of legitimate theater. The stage-as-a-facade dovetails nicely with the drama portion of the movies that hits home the notion that what you see isn't always real. The movie had a lingering effect on me. Afterwards, I found myself parsing over twists and turns in the plot that can be interpreted several different ways. The acting is first rate and the characters are fleshed out. I see a lot of independent films where a few actors who are wooden ruin things, but that's not the case here. Also, this film has first rate staging and technical quality from the DVD I watched, which again is not the case with many indie films I see.
