The Valley Below

Directed by Kyle Thomas
Canada, 2014
Drama
  • English
  • No subtitles

Synopsis

Dividing four related narratives of hope and struggle into four self-contained vignettes, first-time feature director Kyle Thomas creates a Raymond Carver-esque portrait of life on the Alberta Badlands.

Our take

We’re celebrating National Canadian Film Day with REEL CANADA by exclusively showing director Kyle Thomas’s impressive debut. Small scale but emotionally ambitious, it adeptly weaves four stories of lives coming to their breaking points with touching sensitivity.
