Quirky Indie
12 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

I picked up a copy of this DVD at my local library and it proved to be a rather pleasant surprise.

Corn Denton (Honlenny Huffington) and his sister Rita (Klara Howard) are two squabbling siblings sent out on an errand by their mother to pick up some benches for the tourist hotel their parents operate, as the season is about to begin on the Caribbean island of Port Paradise. Taking the family truck, they accidentally run over and kill a large black goat on the road.

From there, they'll be all kinds of quirky adventures and colorful characters ahead, as they try and raise the money that day to repair their parents vehicle. The film has enough humorous moments and a natural unpredictability about it that I found appealing, although not everything works here. Of course, the plush cinematography of the island certainly adds well to the mix.

All in all, this low-budget indie, by first time writer and director Samir Oliveros, worked rather well. I'll be interested to see what else Oliveros brings to the screen in the future.
