charming, sincere, awkward -- and Ian Spangler is adorable
This is like a home movie about the awkward coming-out of a college senior in a Detroit suburb. It has jerky camera work, terrible sound, long periods in which nothing is happening (in a movie that's just barely an hour long), and a total creative crew that consists of the five people who appear in the movie (two only as voices) -- but I liked it. It doesn't pretend to be anything great, but it has a sort of naive sincerity that is really charming.
The acting is better than it should be, as is the writing (the two main actors also wrote it), and Ian Spangler is very VERY cute, even with his weird haircut. It all seemed real, like Ian and Holly were real people, talking the way real people talk, which means practically nothing they say is worth saying, but that's how real people are. Only fake movie people always say things that are interesting.
Although I got restless pretty often, I like this movie's simplicity and lack of pretension, and I want to look at Ian Spangler some more (he has a beautiful face and a quiet, shy, very sexy manner), so I'm going to watch it again.
