Funny, Poignant Portrait of Life
9 November 2016 | by FosterBreadfordSee all my reviews

Walt Whitman once wrote: "Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.)"

The contradictions and complications of real people are often eschewed in films, hoping to create something more accessible, but perhaps at the cost of that humanity. Jim Fields, with Flyover Country, has made a movie about real people who are able to inhabit the contradictions of characters who haven't figured themselves out yet. Rather than resort of the clichés of a coming of age story, Fields has created a cast of characters starring Mike Mecek and Myles Dabbs that believably move from one conflict to another, solving some, and learning to live with the others. Shot beautifully by Matt Patterson and set to a vibrant soundtrack by Dereck Higgins, Omaha comes to life in a funny, poignant portrait of life in this perfectly titled flyover country.
