An impressive debut
Four Corners of Suburbia is an impressive ensemble piece that tackles relationship issues with grace and intelligence. The writing--particularly the dialogue--is poetic and thought-provoking. The performances are absolutely riveting and kudos must be paid to Ms. Puccini for her skillful direction--clearly she is an actors' director. Marked by tight close-ups, the cinematography adds to the intimacy of the film. Lastly, the score is hauntingly beautiful. It was so refreshing to experience a film that delivers on both artistic and entertainment levels. This is a film stays with you. Needless to say, I am anxiously awaiting Ms. Puccini's next feature.
