At first, ostensibly this movie's ordinary grandhotel movie with somehow disquieting mood. But gradually, you notice this depicts evangelical community & how suppressing their creed's for people, especially people's sexual desire & orientation. Very minimal narrative, but acute look to a modern discrimination in America. Deeply, deeply impressed, one of my best movie in 2016 so far MUST WATCH, ABSOLUTELY MUST WATCH.
Like an Evangelical Midwestern “La règle du jeu”, this is a marvel of modest, yet incisive, humanist filmmaking. What could be brazen and too blunt in the hands of a lesser director, turns, in Cone’s hands, into a generous collective portrait of a community and the painful contradictions inherent to their way of seeing the world. The nimble, heartfelt naturalism of the actor’s performances is marvelous to behold.
The themes aren't that much explored, even if there is some valid ones, as the religious pressure against the sexual desires of the characters, but I found myself so bored at so many parts of the movie that I almost stopped watching it. The soundtrack is good, though.
