Another A++ film the public won't see
8 August 2015 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

What to say about this marvelous film? As Gabriel, Rory Culkin will have you liking him, hating him, feeling empathy for him, and just like his family you want to help but Gabe is beyond help.

Gabe makes a bus trip home after being an extended inpatient at a psychiatric hospital. (How long we do not know because it is irrelevant to the story). But first Gabe wants to find a girl he loves - Sarah. And this is the story in Gabriel. To get to Sarah, Gabe is no fool and you actually want him to achieve this goal. But you know it will be a dead end for him. In achieving this task Gabe sinks further into his mental illness.

Director/Writer Lou Howe brings to us the very image of hopelessness by filming all the scenes during winter when all of nature appears dead, skies gray, the days are short. This is symbolic of how Gabe feels about himself, yet he wants to live and come back to a daily life just like spring. But Gabes sun has set and he doesn't realize it.

A beautiful captivating film with superior acting and dialog by all.
