Sweet Virginia

Drama Thriller


 

A former rodeo champ befriends a young man with a propensity for violence.

This film is a thrilling ride reminiscent of a silver screen classic. There is no CGI or pop music editing, so this story relies on meaningful imagery. Scenes are performed with a powerful realism and structured in a way that psychologically draws the audience into the most important few days in the lives of its characters. It's a volatile concoction of an ex-rodeo star, a widow, an enraged young housewife, and an assassin that makes for engaging drama. At its heart, the film examines the basic struggles for Middle America's working class, and how hard it is to hang on when the bull starts bucking. Saddle up and hold on.
