| Not all that simple
The first thing that I want to say about this film is that I am always thrilled to see anyone that is local get to display their creativity to a wide range of viewers. The Oversimplification of Her Beauty was very insightful and left you feeling like you really learned something about relationships and how they may (or may not) evolve. I think that the relationship issues that were discussed in this film are very relatable and Nance did a great job of communicating them through various types of illustrations. The comedic aspect of the film kept the audience engaged and the animation (in its many forms) kept the audience wondering what the heck he will think of next. I really liked the analogy of the making of the bed and how similar it is to creating a relationship (wrong wood, bad evaluation, not everything fitting together, etc.). I thought that part of the film was brilliant. I think that movie fans that enjoy the more eclectic "off-the-beaten-path" movies would really enjoy this film. Every time the film would pause and restart, it was like you were getting to watch another short film and all the short films put together made for a maturing feature film. I want to say that I love the support that Nance received from his community and you could tell by some of the reactions in the theater that some of the folks on screen were very familiar to the audience. I think that as a Nance's debut film, he did an excellent job and I am excited to see what he will come up with next.
