Storyline

Distraught by the suicide of her gay friend Matt, Alexa travels from Amsterdam to her dead friend's small American town, hoping to uncover the reasons that led Matt to take his own life. She arrives with a backpack, her video camera and intentions to make a film about what it must be like to be gay in Bumblefuck, USA. At the end of her hot summer weeks in Bumblefuck, she's made a new special friend, clashed with others, and ultimately discovered more about herself than she could ever have imagined.

This was a weird little film.
22 July 2012 | by i-spookieSee all my reviews

This was a weired little film. It's so un-American yet that's what it is. BUT - the writer and also the lead role - is definitely Dutch. That explains the European feeling that caught me. Cat Smits give a beautiful treatment of her character. She should she wrote her !! There is very little music in it - mostly organic like in bars and the car - with some additional acoustic guitar solo. It works very well. This film is not your round of the mill lesbian story and better for it. I saw it twice to be sure how I felt about it, and I do. It has an element of education in it also, but it never gets cheesy - mostly I find "movies with a mission" a pest - but found that this one blended it all just great. To make sure that I convey my sentiments regarding this film: I don't know if I loved it, but I liked it fine. Great acting all around by the 4 actors. See it !!
