Superlatively acted society conflict non mainstream chillingly brings out primal fear and sexual transgression as a gay Californian high schooler meets his Nebraskan ranch relatives.
First-time essayist executive Matt Sobel’s “Take Me to the River” unfurls in an environment of riddle and fear that appears differently in relation to its surroundings’ rustic quietness. A gay Californian adolescent’s visit to Nebraskan relatives turns more nightmarish than he foreseen, for reasons that he never could have envisioned, as billows of uprooted sexuality float over streaming rivers, rich fields and young ladies on enormous steeds. Told interestingly through the child’s to a great extent uncomprehending perspective, this Midwestern gothic story keeps up adequate visual separation to propose elective accounts from different points of view. The superlatively acted outside the box guarantees more than it conveys, however chillingly brings out adequate primal fear to interest target auds.
