Storyline

Brothers, Sean and Tommy Donnelly live and work in modern day Texas. Tommy has always been troubled and Sean has always been there to help him but when Tommy gets himself $6,000 in debt there's not much Sean can do. The money is owed to some very dangerous people and neither Sean nor Tommy has a spare dime. Worse, at every turn, Tommy manages to find a way to exacerbate their already difficult position. The situation escalates to the point where Sean is faced with a decision: risk his own future by protecting his brother, or abandon his brother for good.

Quiet, well-acted indie drama
16 April 2019 | by lichencraig-89374See all my reviews

There are always some viewers, given a quiet indie film, who don't understand the pacing or subtlety and give it a bad review. I think this will happen, unfortunately, with this little gem of a film.

It's executive produced by Beau Bridges, who has a cameo role. The script is subtle, to-the-point, and sparse in language: like the best indie films, this one relies on a lot of stellar non-verbal acting to tell the story. The story is unique and asks the viewer to think about questions of loyalty and morality, about the meaning of "good" character in a person who does a very bad thing. Is a very bad act justified if the motive is very good?

No review of this film should be made without mention of four things: 1 - The nice little script. I say this as a pro writer and editor. This script is tight, honest, and well-structured. 2 - The beautiful camera work. Slightly arty, it adds to the dreamlike, contemplative quality of the story. 3 - The score. It has an unnerving, menacing quality that keeps the viewer subconsciously nervous. 4 - Patrick John Flueger's beautiful performance. I sat back after this film thinking how underrated this actor really is. He has to carry the film - he's in nearly every scene and the story is fully about his character, and he is never less than mesmerizing. He brings skill that raises the simple lines of the script to a multi-layer level, and a natural charm that invites the viewer into the experience of the character. The character of Sean is ultimately a heartbreaking character - a man trying hard to live a moral, good life in the amoral chaos created by a dysfunctional brother and parental history. Flueger truly brings Sean to life in a way few actors could have. I'd like to shake the hand of whatever casting director's decision this was - it could not have been better..

I wish this film wasn't marketed as a "modern western". What the heck does that even mean? It is simply a unique indie film - part family drama and part crime thriller - that takes place in rural Texas. People, not every film where someone pulls a calf or rides a horse is a "western"! I spend a lot of time searching indie films for the occasional gem (1 out of 50?) and this is one of those gems.
