A drama with supernatural influences, The Other One follows a young woman named Amber who has returned to her childhood home, caring for her mother now in the throes of dementia and haunted by the death of her young son who drowned mysteriously 30 years prior. Watching her mother slip further away, Amber struggles with her own ghosts as she feels her life crumbling around her. All of the characters in The Other One are haunted in the way that each of us is -- by the pasts that we embrace, we hide from, we lie about, and that we make peace with.Written by
Bereaved widow deals with a mystery while caring for her demented mother.
This film, which is very relevant to today's schools' frightening reality of shootings and too-frequent headlines which are tragically no longer shocking or infrequent, has an eerie feel to it with sub-plots that intertwine with the main theme. The dramatic change that one such event made in our heroine's life could happen to anyone, anytime. The music, written and performed by Corbett Lunsford sets the stage beautifully and is woven very smartly into the film. Grace McPhillips who wore many hats in the making of this file, including lead actress, as well as the other actors in the film did a wonderful job, very convincing and painfully real. Kudos to all involved!
