Traces of Love
4 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

During the Age of Reagan, Adele (Erin Wilhelmi) a lonely farm girl wants to leave home. Her prays are answered in almost monkey's paw fashion as she gets to go care for her extremely agoraphobic Aunt Dora (Susan Kellermann), who conjures up images of "Throw Momma from the Train." Aunt Dora stays in her room and communicates mostly by notes. While in town, Adele meets Beth (Quinn Shephard) a free spirited girl who tests Adele and takes her to her limit, i.e. from a protagonist we pity to someone becoming dishonest.

The film trudges along for nearly an hour before something happens worth mentioning. While I understand what takes place, I seemed to have missed the scene that tells me why and how. Without that the film lacks cohesion.

Guide: No swearing or nudity. Brief sex
