A Little Closer 2011
1h 12min | Drama, Romance | 25 July 2012 (France)
In the forgotten corners of rural Virginia, Sheryl struggles to balance her work as a housekeeper and raising her two sons, fifteen year-old Marc and eleven year-old Stephen. Hoping to meet the love of her life and bring home a father for her boys, she frequents a depressing, weekly mixer for the towns aging singles set. Meanwhile, Marc is desperate to lose his virginity, and spends his days working at a used car lot. And his brother Stephen, in the throes of sexual discovery, becomes infatuated with his school teacher while hoping to win the approval of a group of peers who adamantly detest her.
The movie is a little rural drama, which focuses on Sheryl, a single mother, and her two teenage sons, Marc and Stephen. They love each other and are apparently happy, but they are too terribly bored with the lack of what to do.
The action is quite rarefied. Marc tries to convince his girlfriend to have sex, Sheryl goes to parties to seek company, and Stephen goes out with friends to break abandoned cars.
If you like sensitive movies, focused on building characters, this is for you. If you want a well-structured story, full of events, it is better to pass away.
