More than enough Green.....Too little Cheyenne.......
22 November 2011 | by arizona-philm-phanSee all my reviews

.......BUT, kidding aside, this well done work just CANNOT be put into a near 10-STAR rating category, such as enjoyed by "Brokeback Mountain". (Read on for my take as to Why).

Co-Lead performances are of a Good to near Very Good level (but not at that peak achieved by Ledger and Gyllenhaal). Supporting character efforts, particularly female, are very capable....BUT, think back to those we were given, and saw, 6 years ago.

Storyline / Plot (which has been well covered for us by Old Churns-em-Out): I have to award this factor a "Not so much". What we are given is the male teacher suspected / accused of inappropriate contact with a student (okay, yes...this time a young man--but even that's been done before). Then, there's the cautionary advice being given--which we all know will be ignored. And added to the mix are a hidden truth...a misunderstanding...a breakup of lovers---all fairly stock story directions.

AND...none could guess the REAL Bad Guy?? C'mon!!

What I do like, and very much so, is the way in which the ending has been handled. Not all "Sweetness & Flowers"....not "All is Forgiven". INSTEAD.....there is Hope. We are shown Hope.

PS--And speaking of those 4 small letters, which can mean so much in anyone's world.....you movie lovers out there should TAKE HOPE. Because there is yet another little "Teacher / Student" film story now working its way through world film festivals, toward a video release for we Stay-at-Home viewers. And it is one for which I have extremely High Hopes.....hopes stemming from a Newbie Director's last, best effort. That being a great little film called, "Plan B" (what's not to like about that one). This new and now out-on-the-circuit production is titled "ABSENT", and is directed by a young Marco Berger.
