Burning Kentucky delivers on multiple fronts.
28 July 2019 | by WalkerCody-031899See all my reviews

I recently saw this film at the Kentucky Theatre during its Lexington, KY premiere. I can honestly say that after seeing the film, and having a few days to collect my thoughts, that this was a tremendously successful movie. While maintaining a believability and unforced honesty, writer/director Bethany Brooke Anderson crafts a homegrown story that does not lose energy while bouncing back and forth from the multiple personal stories of various Kentuckians. Ending in a tension filled climax, this story delivers an equal amount of "Bluegrass magic" and Hollywood thrills. The folk lore elements present make it something special. Possibly because it tells a story that hasn't been told, in a state that hasn't had the opportunity to truly present itself. This mystic side of the story really works, in part, thanks to a nuanced and understated performance from Emilie Dhir. Dhir brings a patient energy to the screen that is both calming and unsettling. John Pyper Ferguson and Augie Duke deliver powerful performances through their well written and complicated characters. We see them struggle with their internal demons while trapped in the "comfortability" of their longtime home. Overall, I'm so happy that I saw this film and that this story was told. Maybe even more important than its content, is the fact that it exists; serving as a staple for the incoming independent film scene in the state of Kentucky.
