Neighbors Cable Malone and Carson Johnson meet their daily lives with dread. Cable, a recent widower, spends his days waiting to die in the company of his ancient dog, Beau. Carson, a bullied teen keeping another boy's secret, drags himself to school where he knows he will fumble his relationship with his girlfriend and receive new bruises at the hands of his classmates. When Carson makes a small gesture of friendship to Cable, the results end in tragedy, sending Cable into a darker, lonelier state and compounding Carson's feelings of powerlessness. But somehow, the man and boy form a friendship that saves them both.
Intersection of two bruised souls results in understanding for both
I saw this at the Dallas International Film Festival. The film has very professional feel for a film with a limited budget. The acting was so-so at times and the dialog occasionally stilted, but the overall writing quite good and the plot well thought out. But serious praise needs to go to the camera work and lighting design, especially on a budget.The story follows the interaction of a widower still suffering from the sudden death of his beloved wife and a high school student who lives across the street, whose mother has died. He is being raised by his gay uncle who is doing the best he can under the circumstances. How their lives affect each other is the essence of the story.
