Storyline

This Side of the Dirt' is a South Texas family drama steeped in satire and humor. The story takes place days after the death of the family patriarch, Papo. We find his daughter, Jean Ann, alone and weeping as she comes to terms with her loss. As each new character enters her home the layers of her pain and paranoia unfold. In an effort to curb her insecurities Jean Ann only intensifies them by creating more drama around her. As her paranoia builds -- putting her marriage and friendship on the line -- she enters a downward spiral believing the small talk over the people she loves most. It isn't until the spirit of Papo returns that she re-anchors herself and is able to pull back in everything she thought she'd lost. Written by Tito Beveridge

Fun Dramedy
27 March 2019 | by producedthisSee all my reviews

This is a fun ride about a very dysfunctional blended family coping with the loss of the family patriarch. It's a great lesson in what your imagination can cook up when you let it and ultimately a sweet, loving story about coming together through hardship. The film is based on a play so it's dialogue-heavy and there's not a ton of action (until the dinner scene), but there are lots of funny moments throughout. If you're from or familiar with Texas, you'll also get a lot of the fun Texas references. I wouldn't describe it as a "cannabis-Infused comedy," but rather a dysfunctional family dramedy, with Texas-sized drama. Wray Crawford who plays the husband gives a standout, authentic performance and I think the ensemble as a whole does a nice job. Also notable is Jae McCain who plays the cannabis-infused son. Also worth noting that this production is the brain child of Tito Beveridge of Tito's vodka, although peculiarly I don't remember any vodka references in the film.
