Editorial Reviews

Linda White, a barren Christian housewife, leads a sheltered existence in suburban Texas. Her world is turned upside-down when she discovers that her dying husband, Abe, has a 23-year old illegitimate son named Raymond living in Florida. Somewhere on the edge of guilt and loneliness, Linda grants Abe's final wish and sets off on a quixotic journey to find Raymond and bring him back before her husband passes away. Along the way, Linda's wonderfully bizarre relationship with Raymond will teach her more about herself than she ever imagined possible and force her to come to terms with her troubled past.

Heard that this film had won a lot of film festivals - but I didn't know anything about it, and I had only vaguely heard of the actors. Pleasantly surprised. I laughed. I cried. Would definitely recommend, which I'm doing right now!

I was recently browsing for a good movie in the film section of my local library and stumbled upon this. I looked at the DVD jacket and noticed this won some awards at various movie festivals, and that was good enough for me.

"Natural Selection" (2011 release; 90 min.) brings the story of Linda (played by Rachael Harris), who lives within a closed Christian comunity in suburban Houston. Linda finds out that her husband Abe has a 23 yr. old son, now living in Florida, the result of Abe's frequent visits (unbeknownst to Linda) to the local sperm donor bank. Abe suffers a stroke and may be in his last days, and as a last wish, he asks Linda to look up his son and bring him back for one final visit. Linda obliges and finds Raymond (played by Matt O'Leary). Raymong couldn't be more different from Linda ans his only motivation to join Linda for the drive back is that he seems to be in trouble with the law. What we get next is a road movie that chronicles the ups and downs of Linda and Raymond. To tell you more about the plot would surely ruin your viewing pleasure, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: it takes the movie a while to hit its stride. As the stage-setting scenes play out in the beginning, I found it all to be quite unnatural and even a bit forced. But then a magical thing happens: the Linda and Raymond characters are played perfectly against each other, and simply create something specical on the screen. The pivotal moment in the movie comes about half-way, when one evening Linda and Raymond break into a closed restaurant as they are desparate for food, and then start telling deep personal secrets about themselves to the other. Prepare to be surprised and moved!

After watching this, one realizes that Rachel Harris is woefully underused in drama. Comedy comes easy for her, but rare is the actor that can do both so extremely well. Looking forward to more drama roles.

I really like this movie, it's sad that such well made films will never make it to the main stream. Great story, kept me interested, even made me get in touch with my sappy romantic side which I didn't know I had, would recommend it. Not that it's a romance, more of a few statements about life, made me laugh out loud at times, tugged at my heart strings at others, made me even think a bit about my own life. and all that in less than 2 hours

I was not expecting the story that was presented in this film. From the outset, thought the script was something different and amusing. Even if it is a bit of a "dark comedy", it is somewhat a lesson on life. Acting was great. Enjoyed the twists and turns. This kind of film gives Indies a real place in entertainment.

This movie has an outstanding and unique plot. It is not predictable like a lot of movies. Very funny. I can see why it won a lot of awards.

Loved the story and loved the actors. It''s a comedy and yet so serious. Stuck to my head for months. I also loved the ending, I saw it more than once.
