I’ve posted on this movie before, but I thought it a good candidate for Overlooked Movies. It does seem largely unknown.
It was one of the better movies I’ve seen in a long time, fitting into the drama category rather than action, though there’s a bit of that as well.
A story of two brothers and the love between them, what lengths one will go to to protect his mentally challenged younger sibling. Fred Koehler(billed as Frederick Koehler) is exceptional as Pemon Dupuis, the mentally challenged young soul and the only cast member I was at all familiar with. He’s appeared in such films as Mr. Mom, Death Race(the 2008 Jason Statham version), and did a bit of television as well.
An interesting note is that Hurricane Katrina, the worst natural disaster in this country, also wiped out the area this movie was filmed and the footage here is the only known of it.
Here’s the trailer:
