AMERICAN FABLE REVIEWED

“American Fable” feels like a movie that doesn’t get made anymore. Taking place in the early 1980s, our lead is a young girl trying to understand what’s happening to her world. Her family is about to lose their farm. Meanwhile, the older members are acting weird around her. One day, the preteen girl discovers a man kept prisoner in their silo. As it turns out, he’s a wealthy man who is being held hostage to save the farm.

The child’s POV shifts wildly, as she concocts a fantasy way of understanding what has happened. For this being the first feature film from director Anne Hamilton, it plays like the work of a seasoned veteran. Somewhere between the young lead and Richard Schiff’s award worthy performance, I found myself enthralled by the film. While the film dives into dark territory, it also takes the time to explore the wonder of an era without cellphones hooked to every ear.

A time when the imaginary could still take place without an annoying 11 year old shouting what they learned off Snopes into your face. Do not let this movie pass you by.
