Take Me Away • 21-Oct-2014
Lucinella, an openhearted 20-something, visits her dour sister, Lore, in L.A, and we see the weekend as a narrated montage, kinetic & full of spot-on details of how trips like this go. The first day, the younger sister, Lucinella, spends alone eating red velvet poppers and trying to act casual on Beverly Blvd. The other days, Lore takes off from her job at CVS and once she's around, the nature of the vacay shifts. Lore is more at home plodding around pointing at bars that Bukowski liked to drink at, and having mellow conversations, over Lucinella's preference of prancing around imagining the world as a movie. There's a great deal of truth in "Gooses" about people of a certain age, about the differences between sisters, how those differences play out. It strikes quick but, by the end, we're allowed to breath in some poignant real-time moments.
Written and Directed by Shawn Sullivan. Directed and Edited by Joe Peeler. Starring Zena Grey, Katy Knowlton.
