Erica (Amanda Fuller) spends her nights trawling the bars and beds of Austin. Emotionally withdrawn, sleeping with multiple men is just what she does… until she meets the older and mysterious Nate (Noah Taylor), who claims to have an “honorable discharge” from Iraq. Despite his air of danger, Nate’s the only guy who doesn’t just seem to want to get her into bed, and the two form a hesitant bond. But one of Erica’s casual sexual encounters, Franki (Marc Senter) – a young, hot-headed wannabe rock star trying to make it big – is about to return dramatically into her life… Franki “shared” Erica with his buddies one drunken evening. A cruel twist of fate is all it takes to throw his already crazy world into a spin, and in Franki’s eyes there is only one person to blame… —SXSW
A film I think I wanted to like more than I did. The first half is a totally captivating (and oddly touching) character study that soars on strangely matter-of-fact performances. When it got into the second act, the let's-push-buttons-with-lots-of-gore-and-take-some-names stuff, I feel like the film lost a lot of its heart, and I lost a fair amount of intrest.
