When do we get to see a theatrical release. So fine. Can't wait! This looks like an amazing movie.
I LOVED this movie, awesome job
He talks. Did this ever get released. The movie will be released late April, more info coming soon.
Lou Diamond Phillips is a diamond in the rough, one of my favorite actors. Deborah Unger is the most unconvincing Quaker woman in history. when Temperance wasn't busy seducing Quirt with her 'thees' and 'thous' she just stood around with a pout and blank stare. The love scene in the storeroom was unnecessary and frankly flies in the face of the core Christian beliefs I assumed the Quakers in this film upheld. All the movie needed was the kiss at the end to show happily ever after. Oh well.
A very interesting and well executed drama. This film is (like the title character himself) a very quiet, deliberate movie. Yet for all of its restraint, the movie packs a whallop emotionally - culminating in an climax that will stick with you for a while.
The cast is top notch. Veteren actors (James Russo, Keith David, and a particularly good Deborah Kara Unger) mesh well with newcomers (Christine Kelly, Carlucci Weyent) and are led by Dustin Dugas Schuetter as Samuel. Schustter delivers a hypnotic performance in the title role - creating a character that expresses more in his silence than most can speaking.
Well acted, well written, and very well directed, Samuel Bleak" is a pleasant surprise. Well worth a spot in your Netflix cue.
