A mood setter.
29 September 2013 | by zombiebirdSee all my reviews

Well I expected more from this, but then again I usually expect more from things. This basic story, although somewhat cliché, is still good and might have worked if it had been told better. A lot of what takes place seems just to be a general overview of things lacking complexity and intercity, had there been better character development and an a more detailed plot-line, this would have been a good movie. The acting is standard, the characters are pretty flat and so there really isn't much opportunity to compliment or criticize the acting. The directing however is great, it is perhaps what really saves this movie, the slow placed, silent sequenced, coupled with fantastic shots of the rural Texas countryside add structure and really pull you into the story, something that the script sadly does not. In short, you''ll like this if you like minimalist, mood-setting, romanticized drama.
