It doesn’t quite live up to that, but it’s not for lack of trying. The acting is hit or miss — two performances stand head and shoulders above the rest — but it’s the story that never quite gels. And Hamilton plays around with magical realism but it’s never a good fit with the rest of the story. The film takes place on a farm that’s going under, as so many did at the time. We see 11-year-old Gitty (Peyton Kennedy) running through vast fields, chasing her pet chicken, Happy. Gitty loves her father, Abe (Kip Pardue) and rightfully fears her nut-case brother Martin (Gavin MacIntosh), a psychopath-in-training who bullies Gitty and occasionally flirts with something more dangerous, like almost chopping her hand off with... she dismisses Gitty’s dreams of a life beyond the farm. Abe has warned Gitty not to play near the silo, but – being 11 – she ignores him. He wants Gitty to free him, but she worries — maybe this is why she shouldn’t play near the silo. She does befriend him, however, and he asks for books (she has to check them out at the library because her family doesn’t have many) and teaches her to play chess. But she can’t bring herself to let him go. It’s confusing to Gitty, and she starts seeing things — a Maleficent-looking woman who resembles Vera roaming the farm on horseback, mostly. Real life isn’t much better, as she overhears conversations between her parents, and her parents and Vera and that creepy little Martin, who is getting more violent by the day. Eventually Gitty will have to choose between her family and Jonathan. The final showdown is a bit muddled, but again, it looks great — scenes of Gitty running through fields in the cloudy moonlight are shockingly beautiful (Hamilton worked on the set of Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life,” and it shows). But the build-up, with Reagan-era dread and a slowly dawning sense of danger at the possibility of losing her home doesn’t get the payoff it deserves. Source: www.azcentral.com
Meanwhile, when the family is at the fair, a woman named Vera (Zuleikha Robinson), dressed in red and black and all but reeking of fire and brimstone, walks up to Abe and they talk of a deal they have made. The two things are related, of course, though
Anne Hamilton's lyric heartland horror-thriller shows promise that the first-time writer/director has mastered her milieu.
