Editorial Reviews

A small-town beauty queen and an unlicensed mortician set out across the Texas plains on a journey of self-discovery in director Will Geiger's meditative road movie. Annabelle has never known what life is like outside the fiercely competitive world of beauty pageants; her mother's constant demands of physical perfection a never-ending stream of acute, soul-crushing criticism. Elvis doesn't have his mortician's license, but that doesn't stop his eccentric father from putting him to work in the family mortuary. When the sting of her mother's words becomes too painful to endure, Annabelle flees to the town mortuary knowing that is the last place her mother would come looking for her. When Elvis discovers the beautiful Annabelle cowering among the corpses, he sweeps her away on an impromptu road trip so that the pair may free themselves from their daily drudgery long enough to discover their own identities and realize what they really want out of life.

Special Features

Trailers and a featurette interview with writer/director Will Geiger.

We happened upon this movie on a "chick-flick" channel, not expecting too much. It stars one of my favorite actors, Joe Mantegna, so we tuned in to check it out. What a gem! My entire family and I got hooked from the very beginning, and were mesmerized until the end. The male lead, Max Minghella, was absolutely charming and we could not take our eyes off of the screen when he was in the shot. The entire cast was excellent, as was the directing. I am still thinking about this unique and extremely well-done movie. I highly recommend it.

I've never reviewed anything on Amazon or elsewhere online but this film has spurred me to. My wife had seen a trailer of this on another DVD and decided to rent it. She watched it for the first time and loved it so much she watched it a second time straight away that same evening; then for a third time with me. I didn't expect much but, like the previous two reviewers, was hooked at once. The central characters are so likeable and played so deftly and delicately by leads Max Minghella and Blake Lively that I couldn't help be drawn into their simple but compellingly romantic story of young love. I understand this film took a while to get greenlit and didn't get a theatrical release, which is a great shame. Minghella and Lively have deservedly gone on to plenty of jobs, but writer/director Will Geiger seems not to have to the same extent - he deserves to get many more films made.

This movie was a total delight...an unlikely love story between two very different people. It touched my heart and made me feel good about life's happy endings. I have shown this movie to several women, and they all loved it!

I may be a little biased. I attended the premier of this movie in Austin, Texas because I have a relative in the film. No spoilers - I will just say he appears in the opening scenes and has no lines. So I went to the premier to see him, I was pleasantly surprised by this little movie. As a early horror film fan, the subtle homage to many of my favorites was a nice little bonus. The score and 'background' noise brought a smile to my face on during several scenes. Fans of Edgar Allen Poe will delight at his themes being explored amidst a 'sea' of sunflowers.

This is not a horror flick though, it is a sweet little romance. Growing up in Texas I feel like I went to high school with some of these people. The prom/beauty queen, the pervert step father, the mother living her beauty pageant dreams through the daughter, the quiet boy who sits in the back of class and is likely the most interesting person in the room.

Watch it for the fun of it.
