The young boy's seemingly simple goal develops into a struggle in which his life, both internal and corporeal, hangs in the balance.Written by
The 5th and so far only worthy film I've seen this year in the Atlanta Film Festival. The story follows a a scared stiff boy that's too young and too traumatized to understand the bent characters that are harassing him. His life is a super seedy southern milieu world that grows seedier with every character he meets.
Best of all the film has an ending that as far as I'm concerned is new to cinema!
This movie was made with heart and has all the potential to become a cult classic. Especially since its far too eccentric to get major distribution. Oh, and a half naked Deborah Unger helps.
