In his visually breathtaking debut feature film, writer/director Adrian Kays creates a haunting depiction of a troubled young man searching for his past. Set in the Deep South, STILLWATER explores the experiences of Andrew Morrison, a recent college graduate struggling to discover his familial roots while dealing with the shocking discovery of his own adoption. Utilizing the beautiful and elusive imagery of the south, candid performances and unexpected horror, STILLWATER deftly examines a dark and seductive southern landscape that surrounds a young man’s journey into a past that haunts his existence, a reality that proves to be both raw and deeply disturbing.

This film is worth watching for the cinematography alone. That, and the haunting musical score. It really develops a profound sense of atmosphere: dark and lonely and always on the precipice of danger. Can you end up like "someone you never even knew?" The film asks this question with consideration to family heritage and ghosts haunting the memory.

Kept me on the edge of my seat for about a good hour...in the middle. I would give this a four and a half just for sheer gutsiness. A very fine acting performance by the lead in a well sketched character study, great photography...very effective locations and sets. A story that surprises at most turns is a little muddled at the end but leaves you asking questions. A memorable film.
