Laurie (Cynthia Housel) and Quinton (Byron Smith) are young lovers engaged to be married, but his sexual infidelity has created unspoken resentment between them; shortly after he pops the question, she has an affair with her lifelong friend, Justice (Markiss McFadden). This sultry, slow-burning melodrama (2013) generates a palpable suspense, though the low-budget production values, mannered performances, and hokey dialogue often result in unintended laughs. McFadden directed his own script, displaying some visual chops (there are more than a few inspired compositions) and considerable thematic ambition. The metaphorical, pseudo-Shakespearean climax includes a Mexican standoff among the three characters and a sequence that may or not be fantasy; it's completely ridiculous, but McFadden's conviction is impressive. —Drew Hunt 112 min.
