This review is from: That Evening Sun [Night Cover] (DVD)
I was very fortunate to watch "That Evening Sun" on the big screen in Los Angeles. It's cinematography and locations are visually stunning and apropos for the story. Of course, Mr. Holbrook is magnificent and perfectly cast for the lead role.
What makes this film excellent IMHO is its modest, understated approach. Sure, it's a drama, but at no point does it get "dramatic" or overtly poignant. Rather than force feed his viewers with evocative music and gratuitous camera moves/angles, director Scott Teems trusts that viewers are able to sense emotional subtlety and subtext.
I'm excited to hear Teems' commentary and watch the special features!
