Storyline

When small town drifter Sammy Barlach drives into town on the search for his next cold beer and the bunch that'll have him, he gets a lot more than he bargained for. Food, lodging and the possibility of a better future thanks to redheaded Jamalee and her brother Jason who dream of hitting the big time. But breaks aren't easy to come by if you live in Venus Holler. Finding themselves powerless against the forces of corruption and prejudice, the hardest thing Sammy has to fight is the demons inside his own head.

Four- or Five-hundred Lines of Really Good Free Verse Poetry
3 May 2017 | by ex7617See all my reviews

The same author's Winter's Bone had a big impact. I saw it on DVD or Netflix and was duly impressed, but not nearly so much as with this lackadaisically paced, (beautifully filmed, I guess), truly poetic telling of some not-improbable (in fact, very lifelike-seeming) marginal SW US characters doing what they have to in the face of a sociopolitical environment that is obviously, to an almost comical extent, thoroughly stacked against them!

Bravo, everyone - actors, writer/director, casting, DP, editor(s) - and keep up the good work!
