Storyline

1972. Vietnam war protests and racial tension is sizzling in the late summer heat of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Billy Mitchell (Devon Bostick, Diary of a Wimpy Kid), a recent college graduate, spends the summer working on the lush grounds of an old world mental institution run by his psychiatrist father (Tate Donovan, Argo). Billy falls in love with Virginia (Natalia Dyer, Velvet Buzzsaw, Stranger Things), a patient who is possibly crazy, or perhaps she is the only sane person Billy has in his world. Billy's best friend Nigel (Marchant Davis) becomes involved with a radical civil rights terrorism movement against Tuscaloosa's power elite, which includes Billy's father. Billy is torn between Nigel, his father and his cronies, and Virginia who is planning her escape with or without Billy. Written by Patrick Riley

Trivia

Much of the story's action revolves around a mental hospital at which Billy's father is a doctor and in which Virginia is institutionalized. This setting is based on Bryce Hospital, a real mental institution in Tuscaloosa. Founded in 1861 as the Alabama State Hospital for the Insane, it was planned according to the then-groundbreaking ideas of "moral architecture" as pioneered by mental-health activists Thomas Story Kirkbride and Dorothea Dix and was (for its time) a model facility for the treatment of mental illness. For many years it was known across the state as one of the only medical resources for mentally ill patients in Alabama; in her classic novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird," Harper Lee even demonstrates that just the town's name was for many in the state synonymous with Bryce's presence there: "Miss Stephanie said old Mr. Radley said no Radley was going to any asylum, when it was suggested that a season in Tuscaloosa might be helpful to Boo. Boo wasn't crazy, he was high-strung at times. It was all right to shut him up, Mr. Radley conceded, but insisted that Boo not be charged with anything: he was not a criminal." See more »

Beautifully shot and handsomely textured. Have to agree with a previous review that the score has notes of someone familiar with the music industry. Well done!
