I'm glad I read the review that mentioned this film was Twilight Zonesque! It made the really bad acting from all three co-stars tolerable, appearing reminiscint of the stiff, soundstage performances from that show, of which I saw every single episode .....live!
The story moved right along, and I was not bored at all.
It was a very clever script, co-written by Shawn Christensen. Actually, for a movie whos entire cast is only 4 actors, it has to be a DAMN good script to overcome their inexperience.
Christensen put together one of my favorite movies, "Before I Disappear." Christensen wrote, starred, directed, and his band did some of the music in that film.
Katherine Waterston and Sarah Paxton both need a LOT of work.
Waterston has quite an impressive resume of what must have been small roles in some notable films, but again these young women.........
I'm not sure about the German guy. It was hard to tell how well he delivered his lines. He didn't speak English, but I think he just might have been the best of the four.
I saw Scott Eastwood when he starred in "The Longest Ride" in 2015. Ohhh, it was not good.
I was desperate and rented it on Pay Per View, not expecting very much. There was just a limited synopsis, and it was a bit shocking to see Clint's clone show up!
For those of us who remember the TV show, "Rawhide" from the sixties, Scott looks exactly like a young Clint!
In the trivia here, on Scott's birth certificate, it says, "Father declined" I've read Clint was a real lothario.
There are a few stars that cannot act, who have been lucky enough to have long careers, and their acting has never improved. Rock Hudson comes to mind. It's kind of remarkable, with ALL the movies Hudson was in, that it didn't improve just by accident! Keanu Reeves should thank God every day, twice a day! Clint Eastwood is not as bad, but another one. HE had been a stuntman, and did all his own stunts in the "Dirty Harry" films that were UNBELIEVABLE.
As he got older, he learned how to rely on his famous scowl, and gruff voice that covered a lot.
He and Ben Affleck were smart to learn to direct. They could call the shots and surround themselves with great actors so their modest abilities were not as noticeable. And of course, Clint is one of our best directors.
I'm thinking maybe Scott should spend as much time with his dad as possible BEHIND the camera. It might be his strength, too.
