Uhhhg, That was it? Uncompelling story, failed attempt at creating a sense of mood/place. And, as others have noted, the music overpowered the dialogue so much as to be an ear-sore.

Your review convinced me to watch "this little lagniappe of a film. Despite the overwhelming loud soundtrack (I muted the songs in most places, which was WORK) it was a good film. Wish it wasn't so exhausting.

Interesting story, good cast and really enjoyed the slow pace in which it unfolds. Accurate portrayal of small-town life.
