Lightning Bug is a movie that is painful to watch, but only in a good way. The semi-autobiographical story of Robert Hall himself, this movie follows one young man’s journey to find himself and perfect his art as everything around him is in a constant state of flux. However, life is rarely like Hollywood, and Hall makes no attempt to make this story a pat Hollywood ‘boy saves everyone and himself’ story. Still, the characters themselves are very real, and the story is too compelling to rip yourself away from. Both Bret Harrison and Laura Prepon give remarkable performances that show their range as actors. The directing and editing make the film fast paced and consuming. Still, this isn’t a feel good movie. It’s someone’s like told in naked and brutal detail and that’s where the magic of this film lies. Recommended.
