| American cinema at its finest
A superbly acted and involving film that shows what great cinema can achieve when the writer-director at the helm has true vision. The story of 'Arcadia' is centred on a classic American family road trip, and anyone who's travelled with their siblings and parents on a long journey will recognise the authentic detail that forms the fabric of this film. But the director creates and builds a sense of tension from the opening scenes up to the finale, such that one feels completely involved with the characters - as we see ourselves and family shine through them. John Hawkes is engrossing as ever, and the actors that play his kids more than hold their own - this is their movie. Every moment reads truthful, every scene takes you deeper into the story. One can only wish for more feature films of this calibre.
