Storyline

Eight people, one a ghost, come together at a community TV station. There we find, artists, mathematicians, yoga instructors, computer programmers, old hippies, the slightly crazy and the unrequited. The story is set in a small Texas town and the three main characters illustrate some of the dynamics going on. Paul, the artist, is a middle-aged widower who has gone into his own little world and convinced himself that he is happy right there. Mary, the mathematician, knows her life includes a big lie that has become burdensome as she is called to lay her cards on the table and reveal who she really is. Rusty, a one-time hotshot West Coast, radio guy comes to town after his "high life" days are over. Determined to reclaim the past, he is slowly consumed by his fantastical desires and becomes a little crazy. These three, their grown children and the other inhabitants of the TV station get their lives intertwined and nudge each other into new expectations and roles. Written by Rodger Marion

An emotional journey for people needing to be nudged out of their complacent lives
12 November 2015 | by Bruce NiebuhrSee all my reviews

In "Nudged" writer/director/producer Rodger Marion explores a theme he has explored before – people who are stuck in a place in their lives and need a push to move on ("Healer" and "Impasse"). The intersecting lives of parents, children, and acquaintances are nicely presented. Fantasy elements (dreams and a ghost) are used effectively to produce the mood. The party scene, in particular, is a dream-like carnivale with a juggler, musicians, and a strange game involving a giant disembodied brain. Another character in the movie is the Texas Hill Country setting which Marion uses effectively to establish atmosphere. Jason Marion's music nicely complements the characters' emotional journeys.
