Fellow Movie Buffs

Friday, April 5, 2013


Excellent little film. The story takes place in the rural South and revolves around Evan, a kid in his late 20s who has Down syndrome. He's a sweet, gentle guy who has a crush on a divorcee, who he knew in high school. When his mother dies, he inherits a bunch of money, which he wants to use to take care of his "girlfriend" who's always in financial trouble. There are several times in the movie where you say to yourself, "Uh-oh. I know where this is headed". I won't be a spoiler and tell you what happens, but let's just say, I encourage you to stick with the movie. The actor who plays Even, I believe is somewhat intellectually challenged in real life, but what a performance! And Shannon Woodward, as the girlfriend, is also amazing.

4 1/2 out of 5 stars
