A high school senior in his final days of school must come to terms with the death of a friend. “Lay Me by the Shore,” directed by David Findlay, is a gorgeously photographed, impeccably crafted tone poem about bottled confusion, regret and shame. As graduation looms for Noah, he spends his days with friends trying to keep his mind off the recent tragedy. Those in his life — his girlfriend in particular — attempt to lift him back up, but he’s devastated and haunted by the thought he could have done something to prevent the death. A film swimming in uncertainty, it’s rendered with a remarkable sense of gravity, expressed less in plot than in gesture and atmosphere, and punctuated by a striking soundtrack. -KA.
