A subtle mystery
1 February 2017 | by jrl-2See all my reviews

This is a thoughtful movie made outside the studio 'system'.

If you're not paying attention, it appears to be a movie about mostly 20-somethings getting together for an annual holiday, with an undercurrent of emo angst (minus the makeup and hair color).

If you are paying attention, you'll pick up on the undercurrents but it won't come together until after things turn sideways.

McCaleb Burnett's Henry hosts the group of long-time friends, but he's been distracted by recent events and seems to have an ulterior motive.

Richard Bekins makes the most of his brief screen time to establish his character (Walter) as the heavy.

The rest of the ensemble cast is so transparent that the group of friends is comprised of archetypes instead of the stereotypes you would see in a lesser movie.

Who does what and why does get explained, but you'll still have to pay attention to know just how they got away with it.
