Take Me to the River
Dir. Matt Sobel
USA 2015 (84:00)

Matt Sobel's assured directorial debut is the story of Ryder, an artsy, confident California teen who is heading to Nebraska for a family reunion. After planning to come out to his conservative relatives, he holds off at his mother's request but nevertheless makes a showy entrance at the cookout with his short shorts and his eye-catching shades. No one seems particularly impressed except his 9-year old cousin Molly, who likes to follow him around. When they go to the barn to look for birds in the rafters and she comes back screaming and inconsolable, Ryder comes under suspicion and, in the process of clearing his name, learns that some family secrets are sometimes better kept that way.

With impressive performances by Josh Hamilton (Frances Ha, Away We Go), Robin Weigert (Deadwood), and rising star Logan Miller (The Stanford Prison Experiment, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse), Take Me to the River delves deep into family dynamics only where dysfunction could thrive the most - a family reunion.
