Poignant film short
2 December 2010 | by lowbudgSee all my reviews

After the Denim is a wonderful short that should resonate with any generation that had to deal with a generation gap. The acting is superb and subtle. I personally am not overly familiar with Raymond Carver's work, but the script allowed me to understand and sympathize with the old man of this piece.

The story deals with a retired man who is set in his ways. When he and his wife encounter young strangers at their weekly bingo game, it serves as the catalyst for him to be either compassionate or judgmental. The situations set up in the film give him the opportunity to be both.

This is a classy adaptation from writer/director Gregory Goyins, and co-director Scott Rosenfelt. Tom Bower and Karen Landry share a perfect chemistry as the older couple. And Jeff Newburg and Ceren Alkac play the young couple with a reckless abandon that reflects a perfect opposition to the older couple's settled ways.

Bottom line, I really enjoyed this film.
