Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

This is not a film for everyone: It demands great patience, and forgiveness for its characters’ misdeeds. But its reward is a perfect image of a young couple just learning the words to express what they’re just starting to feel. So many scenes may seem frivolous, but there’s a rich hidden layer of meaning here, spread liberally across bleak and beautiful images of North Carolina. At first it seems like the work of a perceptive female director, but eventually it’s clear, this is the work of a man who wants to communicate how love felt when it happened to him.
