About the Film

In a near-empty Northfork orphanage, Father Harlan gently tends to Irwin, a eight-year-old who lies between a dreamstate and death. As orphanage caretaker Harlan reads aloud about Northfork's years-ago forced evacuation to make way for a hydro-electric dam, Irwin's imagination takes flight. While a team of six men evacuate the last remaining citizens of the town, Irwin, too, invents a cast of characters to prepare himself for his own evacuation.

Customer Reviews

An acquired taste

Definitely a movie that makes you think - a surreal convergence of two stories, though it is not really driven by its plot rather by its characters and imagery. Like the Polish Brothers' previous films it will divide viewers, some will find it boring and arty while others will be fascinated by its vision. In the end, I enjoyed it and would probably not have picked it up as a DVD, so thanks iTunes for making more esoteric fair available. Quality of imagery and sound was excellent on an Apple TV connected to my home cinema system.
