I was shocked by how much I liked this movie. I did not selected it and watched it only out of social obligation, but I'm glad I did.

The bad: It's a bit amateurish. The cinematography in particular was, at times, distracting as it tried just a little too hard. If anything that heavy handedness was the common weakness throughout. Although the acting was good the move was generally a bit over wrought. The pull quote from the trailer was dropped into the film in a way that said after thought more than critical moment, the symbolism of the closing seen was obvious and yet imperfect. The realism was refreshing but the ending took a disappointing turn towards implausible redemption.

The inexplicable: I have no idea why it was titled Lebanon, PA. Any conservative rural setting within driving distances of a major metropolitan area would have done. Lebanon wasn't a character, it wasn't relevant. The choice of titles was strange.

The good: From opening shot to climax this movie had a refreshing realism, quality acting, and a thought provoking plot. It managed to tell multiple stories in a cohesive and synergistic way. (Drawing those lines together in an improbable resolution was an unfortunate rom-com choice) The realism added to the films wit and engagement. Although it hinged on families in upheaval and culture clash it managed to avoid provocation for provocations sake.

Bottom Line: Recommended.

It's not a great film, but Lebanon, PA is a solid indie film from Ben Hickernell. I got the chance to be an extra and you could tell from the mood on set that the movie would be a fun, not to mention funny, movie. I had a ton of fun watching - on set and on my couch.

Giving the movie a 1 is really being generous. Very disappointing, trite, misleading,
demeaning treatment of an important serious issue. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
