Greetings again from the darkness. Not long ago, cable movie channels were filled with late night flicks that were easy enough to watch, and even easier to forget. Unfortunately, that description fits the second feature film from director Amy Redford (daughter of screen legend Robert Redford). Scott Organ adapted the screenplay from his own play, "The Thing with Feathers", and the title of the film has been changed ... it played the 2022 Toronto Film Festival as ROOST. It's one of those times where some individual pieces are better than the film as a whole. Grace Van Dien ("Stranger Things, CHARLIE SAYS, 2018) stars as Anna, who is on the verge of her 17th birthday. She has been secretly online chatting with an older "college boy" named Eric. In a virtual 'meet cute', they read Emily Dickinson poetry to each other and talk for hours. Since he lives 900 miles away, the two have never met, but in typical teenage fashion, Anna says "he gets me." As an unexpected birthday surprise, Eric (Kyle Gallner, THE FINEST HOURS, "Interrogation") shows up at her door and drops off a thoughtful present. All of this is happening as Anna's mother Beth (Summer Phoenix, sister of Joaquin and the late River) announces her engagement to her cop boyfriend Tim (Jesse Garcia, QUINCEANERA, 2016). The proverbial 'stuff' hits the fan when Anna introduces Eric to her mom. Not only is Eric a bit older than he let on (and the college story was a fabrication), his aw-shucks and overly apologetic demeanor don't seem to charm anyone except Anna. But more than that, there's a twist here that causes a cosmic shift in all of these relationships. Grace Van Dien is the great-granddaughter of the late and legendary Robert Mitchum, and she's worked non-stop the past ten years, though I've only seen her in a couple of things. She clearly has screen presence, although this role doesn't stretch her much at all. I do hope she's offered some more challenging projects moving forward. The bulk of the film's second half focuses on creepy manipulation and the grooming of teenagers ... a hot and important topic lately due to the vulnerability of teenage girls. The message is appreciated, but this one would have benefitted from some script polishing so that the dialogue was more realistic. Opens on August 4, 2023.
