||Synopsis: Newly arrived in an up-market housing development, quiet ten-year-old Devon doesn't quite fit in. Ignoring the urgings of her social-climbing father, Devon chooses the company of Trent, who mows the estate's lawns, rather than of the girls her own age. Their friendship grows during her visits to his trailer home, but although it is completely innocent it is obvious that it would be unacceptable to the residents if they found out.

I first saw this film on late night BBC in England and was half watching
while packing for college. By the half way mark, i was sucked in and
couldn't not watch.
The first thing that will knock you out is Sam Rockwell. Over the last few
years he has risen in fame due to high-profile parts in Charlie's Angels,
The Green Mile and Mamet's Heist, but here is the arrival of a veritable
acting talent. His is a simple, truthful unshowy performance that
throughout the film without crushing it. He is the film's heart, rather
a scene-stealer. As we learn more about his poor, white-trash lawn cutter,
we sympathise and begin to realise how easily the reactions of others
up on the food chain conspire to create chaos for him.
I won't give too much about the story away, because it frequently heads
in new, interesting directions, but essentially this is the story of Devon
(newcomer child actor Mischa Barton) and the above mentioned Trent
(Rockwell) and their relationship. He is poor, she comes from wealthy
but feels out of place in her materialistic world and they are both
of nature. What makes it compelling is that she knows this and revels in
and Trent has to be shown, by her.
John Duigan does a wonderful job of introducing strands and themes which
first seem offbeat and peculiar but which all add to the sense prejudice,
division and isolation felt by these two brillaintly-wrought characters.
Each find the other intriguing but are hesitant to become close because of
others' values. Eventually they become friends and just as they accept
the world around them turns on them and what started out as an irreverent
comedy-drama, turns into something much darker and even
Where the film goes from there, I will leave to you to discover. Please
because this is a very unique film in American independent cinema. Much
the more high-profile American Beauty, what at first seems like character
cliche and predictability rapidly leads you down the path least expected.
Its beautifully shot, making full use of a handful of gorgeous locations,
wonderfully acted, particularly by Barton and Rockwell, but also by the
ever-reliably sleazy Christopher Mcdonald (Shooter McGavin in Happy
and Louise's husband in Thelma & Louise), the quietly strong Kathleen
Quinlan and the lesser spotted Bruce McGill in one of his best roles as
security guard Nash. The music is also peerless, at first playful and
building to a dramatic climax.
That climax is what makes this film stand head and shoulders above the
An emotional pay-off such as you have never seen in a film of this ilk.
