I picked this movie because of Timothy Olyphant. I like his performance in HBO series "Deadwood" but have not seen him on the big screen yet before I got this movie. His big dark eyes are mesmerizing and his quiet walk hints that there is a trouble to this character that is difficult to decode right away. Olyphant plays a convict released early from the prison who returns to his home town. He wants to collect money from a job that landed him to prison in a first place and reconnect with friends from his youth. His best friend is a sheriff, kind and caring, if not dull - who is married to a beautiful woman both men love. Can this love triangle survive the temptations? Where does loyalty and frendship fall into the play? Can someone start over his life after terrible personal loss? Good story, lots of action, great characters and moving emotional power.

Victor Nunez may not be the most prolific filmmaker - he's made five feature films in 28 years - but the ones that do exist are intimate portraits of characters in transition, often leaving a bad situation in the hopes of starting a new life. His films are set in Florida (the state that he hails from) and his latest, Coastlines, is no different. However, because it was independently financed, the film has taken five years to finally see the light of day on DVD but for fans of Nunez's work, it has definitely been well worth the wait.

Right from the opening credits Nunez establishes the setting and the main characters of the film. He does a great job creating a sense of place, immersing us in the town and the people that inhabit it with the way he shoots everything and uses location and music. For example, he employs several evocative overhead long shots of the landscape that really go a long way in setting a particular mood and atmosphere. There is a consistency to the way he shoots his movies and Coastlines feels like it was shot in the 1990s along with his last two efforts, Ruby in Paradise and Ulee's Gold.

Nunez also has a knack for drawing very naturalistic performances out of his actors. These characters behave and speak like actual people and not like movie stereotypes. There's an ease and natural flow to their conversations. It's great to see actors like Timothy Olyphant, Josh Lucas and William Forsythe, who normally play larger than life characters in more mainstream fare, portray more realistically-written characters.

The nature of the story - a drama mixed with a crime thriller - lends itself to a potentially sensationalistic approach but Nunez treats every aspect of the movie (even the blowing up of a house) in a matter-of-fact manner.

I'm a big Olyphant fan so hung in there but the movie itself is very slow. The acting is good, and the actors are good. Just whoever directed musta been on Valium through most of the film. The soundtrack kinda brings it down. It's definitely a throw-back and very interesting to see some of these actors (Josh Brolin) before they made it big. All in All I did find it interesting. Just a bit 'paced' if you will. Olyphant is in his prime here. HOT HOT HOT.

There is a good cast, and some good acting. The story doesn't work at the end. Its trying to tell the story of a married couple and some of the challenges that come with giving up the past and growing up, putting your kids before fun, keeping the spark. The end doesn't work though.

This film was made in my home town, with the cast and crew staying and working out of our family motel, (Buccaneer Inn) on Saint George Island Florida. Became good friends with Josh Brolin, and enjoyed playing host to everyone in the production. The movie has a great plot while the casts performance was very good. The editing lacked something, as the movie has too many scenes.

Being a huge Timothy Olyphant fan, I knew I would not be disappointed and I wasn't. This is an emotional little movie with characters that are flawed and so human. I would suggest this film to others.

I rented this film from Video on Demand for less then three bucks and watched it in a fit of boredom. Under these circumstances, I do not regret seeing it. However, had I spent money to actually purchase the DVD, I would not have been pleased. The film is a low budget creation which surprises with good acting. However, not even the quality of acting can rescue the film from the poorly constructed and written story.

After three years in jail for drug traficking, Sonny (Timothy Olyphant) comes back home on early release. His first order of the day is to collect $200K from the Vances, his former partners in crime. His shut mouth after his arrest had earned him the pay out. However, the Vances are slow with the cash, eventually making it clear they have no intention of paying up. While waiting for the money, Sonny re-establishes his relationship with his lifelong friends Dave and Ann (he is a local police officer), now a happily married couple with two daughters. It quickly becomes evident that Sonny's feelings for Ann run deeper then friendship. From this point on events slowly escalate. There is murder for hire, murder for revenge, betrayal.

You'd think that the above is a good set up for an interesting story. So it is. However, the writers mangle its potential by having characters make choices and decissions far removed from human logic, in order to accomodate a predictable scenario of events. Therefore, in the end, nothing makes sense to the viewer. All leading characters without fail seem self centered and narcisistic. Sonny does not seem to be at all concerned that by pursuing Dave's wife he is destroying his two friends and their children. Ann finds it easy to begin an affair with Sonny, despite having an otherwise happy marriage.
