THE NOTHING tells the story of Ren Dubbin, a man struggling to reconcile his spiritual convictions with his crippling fear of the unknown. He awakes to find himself in an eerie, ramshackle barn with four strangers. The men have no idea where they are, and no memory of how they got there. The mystery turns to desperation when they open the doors to find the barn floating in an endless expanse of emptiness and total darkness. Nothing. The oppressive nothingness outside and bizarre events inside bring to light the men's deepest fears, doubts, failings, and beliefs. When their situation appears to grow hopeless, the men turn to reflections on life and death, faith, God and- ultimately- the afterlife. Written by Derek R. Stogner

Excellent concept, Unique delivery
21 April 2011 | by leannpassSee all my reviews

Excellent concept portrayed in a very out-of-the-box way of thinking. The humor woven into the film is funny, not overdone, and connects with the viewers. The cast members were spot-on in their portrayal of their characters. Questions or statements that I would have wanted to say seemed to appear as the next line in an already very engaging story. Afterwards, viewers are not left hanging with a sense of "yeah, but..". Yet, it does not wrap things up in a neat little package. I was taken by surprise at the emotion that welled up in me in the very last frames of the film. An unexpected touch to the heart and soul. I can understand why this film sold out at its first showing during the Nashville Film Festival. I highly recommend this movie to everyone.
