| Best of the Fest!
Saw this film at the Hamptons Film Festival recently and it was the best of the lot. This had potential for being lumped in with the endless number of films with similar set-ups (Family and friends gather for a weekend together, tensions erupt, secrets come out, etc...) However, being beautifully shot, written, directed and acted, it makes leaps ahead of the pack. The characters were very compelling and touching, with Gena Rowlands effortlessly playing the grande dame to the hilt. The rest of the cast was, in varying degrees, hovering around that caliber, with excellent work from Brooke Shields, as Rowlands' spoiled daughter. Fantastic chemistry between the cast, which is a testament to the director's abilities.

No idea when or if it has a release scheduled, but I recommend seeking it out. Look forward to the next!
