4.0 out of 5 stars THE BATTLE OF ALL MOTHERS, 14 Jun 2013
This review is from: The Tall Man [DVD] (DVD)
This crime/drama/mystery starts out with glass being picked out of Julie's face (Jessica Biel) then we flashback 36 hours to briefly build character. Cold Rock, Washington is a dead mining town where children frequently go missing. The town folk blame the "Tall Man." Julie is a nurse who runs the community clinic. She has taken over for her husband who was a doctor.

During this time we are introduced to Tracy (Samantha Ferris), her biker boyfriend Steven (Teach Grant), and her two teen daughters Carol (Katherine Ramdeen) who recently had a child by Steven, and Jenny (Jodelle Ferland) a self imposed mute who has seen the Tall Man. When Julie's son David is abducted, mom springs into action without thought for her personal safety.

Then the movie turns weird. We discover that the town's police car rear doors can open from the inside and poverty is a cycle that results from a broken system. The twist caught me off guard which is why I liked the film. In fact it flashes back and let's you see the clues, in case you missed them. The film raises social questions, but doesn't supply definitive answers. Good acting. Well written. I liked how the story developed. It spent just a touch too much making social comments, rather than just have the film speak for itself.
