Lost Colony2015

  • 3.6
Poetic, mysterious and visually elegant, Christopher Holmes' debut feature forges an impressionistic coming-of-age narrative as prismatic as the ever-changing strand of shoreline the story inhabits. With refreshing sincerity and an unassuming sense of humor, LOST COLONY considers the lives of conflicted teen Loren, his hyper-protective mother Patricia, and others like them along the Outer Banks of North Carolina's coast- site of the first attempted English settlement in the New World. As Loren begins to sense the widening distance between himself and his expecting girlfriend Ramona, a near tragic accident threatens to capsize their world and forces a reckoning with the delicate mythology he has crafted to make sense of it. A searchlight cast upon the earliest traces of America and the mystery of settlers vanished, LOST COLONY scans a once virgin watershed for signs of life.

I gave this indie film a look because I've lived in North Carolina for 25 years and the film takes place there. I was not disappointed. Lost Colony has a lot going for it, including some excellent camerawork, solid acting, near-flawless audio, and a story with a lot of heart. There may not be a lot of fast-paced action here, but this is a very good film, well worth 90 minutes of your time.

very good movie, surprisinlgy bad ending given the quality of the rest; still worth the time; such a good film it's an incongruously bad ending that may have either been forced or the result of fulfilling an idea that was afoot before the film was made and should have been scrapped. no matter, still a very good film worth watching
