Cornelius is a sweet, character driven drama about a father (Jason Williams) who has suffered a nervous breakdown and is now trying to reconnect with his estranged son (Rock Williams), while simultaneously attempting to navigate what has become for him a strange and unfamiliar world.
The Cornelius DVD comes with extras: three music videos, a trailer, a digital download of the soundtrack and a feature commentary with the filmmakers.
When the movie opens, a man is just re-emerging into the world after a nervous breakdown caused by the traumatic loss of his wife while his son was just an infant. It's 7 years later, and the man has repressed the memories of his wife's death, and spends his time working a menial job and leaving small gifts on the front porch of the home where his son is now being raised.
Eventually, the man and the boy come face to face and, as he and the boy start to bond, the man begins to remember fragments of the buried trauma. While this experience propels him inevitably back towards a mental breakdown, he tries his best to connect with his son in a meaningful way before.
Director Giovanny Blanco (El Quickie, Viva Malpache, SHU-SHO) and writer Sarah Thorp (The Bounty, Twisted, TNT's Hawthorne) have put together a movie guaranteed to leave you with left with the hope that anything is possible.
