Charles Evered wrote and directed this sometimes-whimsical drama about a sophisticated, artsy, argumentative NY couple (Bebe Neuwirth, Peter Coyote) who invite a lonely sailor (Ethan Peck) for dinner. What ensues is a little like a whiff of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf meets Forest Gump. This film, a festival favorite, also had a limited run at theaters including the Camelot in Palm Springs. Here is the best of old school filmmaking in which the spoken words matter. Young Peck is astonishing in his sweet-natured optimism and his confident stillness. Dressed in crisp whites, it's easy to see him as an angel. In fact, many viewers are certain this was intended, but Evered is evasive. Much of the production, though set in NY, was shot in Palm Springs. Evered is a significant new talent to watch. He is currently in preproduction on a new film with the working title Upon a Star. Apparently Evered has something to say about celestial matters, whether he intends to or not. From Echo Bridge. (2009, Not-rated, Widescreen, 85 Minutes)
