FOUR DVD Review



Synopsis: In a nameless, suburban American town, the smell of barbeque fills the air as Fourth of July celebrations move from a hot summer day into night. Joe, a man who works hard and travels a lot, leaves his family behind for the holiday, citing a business trip. Abigayle, his precocious daughter, is left to tend to her ill mother and manage the house on her own, yet again. Seeking just enough attention to get her through another night of her lonely responsibilities, she turns to Dexter, a former high school basketball star whose best days are behind him. And while Abigayle is out with Dexter, Joe is quietly spending time around town with June, a young man he met online who s struggling to accept himself. And for just this night, the small world that these four live in will become even smaller, though the freedom they experience has never been so dangerous, fleeting and honest. Adapted from Obie-winning, Pulitzer Prize-nominee Christopher Shinn s highly-acclaimed stage play, Four is full of the poetic and tender human drama of great theatre. STAR POWER! Wendell Pierce (The Michael J. Fox Show, The Wire, Treme) Emory Cohen (The Place Beyond the Pines, Smash) Aja Naomi King (Emily Owens, M.D., Onion News Network) E.J. Bonilla (The Mortician, Musical Chairs) Bonus Features-Commentary, Behind the Scenes Featurette, Theatrical Trailer, More from Wolfe.

Review: Four is a thought provoking film that is more of an art piece.  It centers around the lives of four people on the fourth of July.  The number four pervades the entire piece.  The movie shows the interconnecting pieces of these four people's lives.  Dealing with disease, closeted homosexuality, loss and desire.  This one will most definately challenge you and make you think.  Its a wonderful watch and we highly recommend.

Interest Range: Drama
