I liked this movie more than most, or so it seems. It is an excellent feature debut from director Mehdi Norowzian. Performances are fine, particularly Joseph Fiennes as the adult Leo. The story is presented in a complex style, perhaps a little too complex to grasp on first viewing. Davis Sweatt only appears in about 20 minutes of the film, most of that being towards the middle. He did a good job and it's a pity that it's his only movie to date.

The movie itself is a kind of southern gothic drama with a very distinct cinematographic approach. The storyline is made up of two subtly intertwining narrative layers that make the movie as a whole hard to grasp at the first look, but thoroughly convincing as an independent character study at last. Very complex material in terms of plot and narrative style, very gloomy and depressing as well as partly stereotyped in terms of character portrayal and very distinct in terms of pace and cinematography.
