Storyline

Joon Chu, a Korean exchange student, suffering from the loss of his brother, finds himself marooned in small-town USA, where he is irrevocably swept up into the brave new world and bizarre philosophies of Butch Blossom, a touchingly militant performance artist. In an attempt to balance family, love, friendship, responsibility and personal legacy, Joon and Butch must come together to face their own fears and learn how to embrace the world with a new found sense of courage and humor.

Fun quirky film
6 December 2020 | by atomiccomandantSee all my reviews

I stumbled upon this movie on prime while looking for an indie to pass the time with. I was not prepared to be pulled into this movie the way i was. Its your basic fish out of water scenario with a napoleon dynamite sort of feel and heart. Charles Chu really carries the film his performance as Joon was so subtle and natural. Ryan O'Nan was very good too as the consummate outsider artist. Alot of people say he was over the top but being as I was a musician for a number of years i can say that people like actually do exist, typhoons of creative chaos. The movie was full of indie cliches (Acoustic soundtrack, pink haired love interest, Quirky characters around every corner), That being said this movie just has a way about it. Everyone in it feels real the town feels real the friendship that builds between the leads feels real.

In short, if you are a fan of indie films with lots of heart. And seeing the writers take the reigns creatively and really giving it their all then you owe it to yourself to check this movie out.

PS... I am the locust.
