Storyline

On a remote wooded island, a young woman becomes caretaker to an old man in a vegetative state. She has no cell signal, no Internet. Only a year removed from high school and forced to meet the needs of a man who cannot respond, Joslyn vacillates between finding solace in his company and feeling fear and anger towards him. As the monotony of daily routine starts to unravel, boundaries collapse and Joslyn struggles with sexuality, guilt and loss. Written by Anonymous

Beautifully acted, shot and executed
28 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of watching this movie at Slamdance 2011 a few days ago and can't stop thinking about it. "Without" has such a nuanced story that it offers a lot, I think, upon a second or third viewing (unfortunately I've only seen it once). Joslyn Jensen's performance was mesmerizing, made more so by the excellent cinematography.

The film takes you in different directions, and you're never sure where you're going to be left until the credits roll. It tries to tell many stories, and in some ways may be overreaching with this ambition. This is okay, though, as the journey is well worth it, and gives you many things to think about over the following days.

If you get the chance, see this movie. I hope it'll get distribution in the near future.
