Pretty impressive for a directorial debut. Absolutely gorgeous. And the acting performances from complete unknowns were quite good too. Quiet and understated. Sometimes it was so understated though that it was a bit slow going at times. And I like slow movies. Still, I'm pretty interested to see what director Lance Hammer does next.
The movie centers on three characters in rural Mississippi: a single mother, her troubled son, and the identical twin brother of the boy's father. It reminded me a bit of Frozen River - another movie about people you don't normally see in movies - the rural poor. I liked this film a lot more than that one though. There are moments of absolute poetry in this film.
