Just days before leaving for Nashville, Rhett Ryan discovers that the desire to follow his dream conflicts with his desire to be with the woman he loves. While Samantha does love the singer-songwriter, she starts to realize what's best for her daughter and their future may not be what's best for him. Tommy Carson works around the clock to keep the peace in Prospect, but Donny, who is on a downward spiral, makes this even more difficult for the deputy. And Les just wants to fit in with his big brother's friends, but his overbearing mother desperately wants him to stand out. The subtle interconnections of these character's lives will bring them all closer together, culminating in Rhett's final performance.

Intense Small Town Kaleidoscope

Rating: 8/10

Is everybody too busy watching "Inglorious Avatars" to see this fine
piece of Indie film-making? It would be a pity – because they'd be
missing a real cinematic treat. The film begins at dawn in the small
mountain town of Prospect as a promising young country musician
prepares for one last gig at the town bar before he heads for Nashville
to see if he's got what it takes in the larger world. As the day
unfolds we meet various other citizens of the town – the regretful
sheriff, his estranged wife, an alcoholic father, an overweight
brother, an ex-con troublemaker, an overbearing mother and several more
of their acquaintances. Their stories mingle in an varied mix of
compact narratives, most of which are concerned with the relationships
of parents and their children – some of them sentimental in tone, and
others which are full of cold cruelty and pain. An excellent cast
portrays these interesting characters with truth and intensity, even as
cinematographer Matt Kovalakides captures their high-country summer
world with such skill that one can smell the pine resin. Everything
about this film speaks of a well-balanced team effort. Nobody in cast
or crew seems to put a foot wrong, and the characters and their stories
are worthy of the dedication and sacrifice. By the time night falls
over Prospect, a discerning audience might well feel they got more bang
for their buck than if they'd seen a dozen self-important,
hundred-million-dollar blockbusters.
