Storyline

Just days before leaving for Nashville, Rhett Ryan discovers that the desire to follow his dream conflicts with his desire to be with the woman he loves. While Samantha does love the singer-songwriter, she starts to realize what's best for her daughter and their future may not be what's best for him. Tommy Carson works around the clock to keep the peace in Prospect, but Donny, who is on a downward spiral, makes this even more difficult for the deputy. And Les just wants to fit in with his big brother's friends, but his overbearing mother desperately wants him to stand out. The subtle interconnections of these character's lives will bring them all closer together, culminating in Rhett's final performance. Written by Curt Charney

Some Fine Performances in an Ultimately Weak Film
19 July 2013 | by PDXozonerSee all my reviews

Let me say up front that I think it's incredibly difficult and rare for a first time film director to have the discipline to effectively direct his own script. Granted Ryan Craig's written and directed a couple of TV movies, but things change a lot when you're doing a real grownup film. The chance to see your every word and decision on the big screen makes it agonizing to cut a single scene... hey! You wrote that! That said, there are some excellent performances from a cast loaded with accomplished actors, not least Shawn Christian who's best known for his soap opera career and Chris Pine who gets to indulge his hunky looks while playing some seriously downer scenes. I don't think John Hawke (Winter's Bone and The Sessions) is capable of a bad performance and this one gives him plenty of room.

I gave it a 5 because of the writer-director's failure to make the fullest use of this wealth of talent, but since the film is playing on HBO and it's not a halfbad way to spend an evening.
