Welcome back to the Monday Movie Matinee, folks! Every Monday! And we’re starting off with the kind of awkward, but excellently presented, indie flicks that the 3M is known for when it comes to introducing you all to new stuff to watch! So, let’s get started!
"Take Me To The River"
“Take Me To The River” has a lot more going on under the surface than most people would expect, and I was really captivated by that while I was watching. The movie begins with a California family traveling out to a small, rural, town in middle America for a family get together, where their family members are not as understanding and open minded as the home that they’re coming from. A bit of a problem since the teenage son has recently come out as being gay, and the parents are...ummm...supportive, but very clear that it’s not something that he should tell the rest of the family during their family weekend. Something that he agrees to...reluctantly.
So the family gets together, and he’s getting along with his younger cousins and family members, including one young girl who clearly has a bit of a crush on him. And when the two of them disappear for a short while, and the girl comes running back to the house, crying, there’s a question as to what happened between them. She’s only 8 years old, and with his California ways already making him a bit of an odd duck around his family, he is instantly suspected of doing something inappropriate with his own cousin. And no one really knows how to take this situation. Complicated by the fact that he’s actually gay but can’t say it to anyone, even if it’s the one thing that might clear his name. It’s a really compelling story. So check it out if you get a chance!
No spoilers, but it goes into feelings of isolation, homophobia, child sexuality, and more. Including a twist that I didn’t see coming at all. So enjoy! And let us know what you think when you get a chance!
