Dale Dickey’s performance is a master class in authenticity, as always.
Dickey is Faye, a solitary figure with a face full of longing at Campsite 7. She sets her crawdad traps, makes her coffee, studies birds and their calls by day, stars and their positions by night, and waits. Eventually, Faye’s patience pays off in the form of her childhood friend, Lito (Wes Studi).
Decades of absence and years of meaning stand between Lito’s charming smile and Faye’s searching eyes.
Filmmaker Max Walker-Silverman’s feature debut blesses us with 81 minutes of Dale Dickey, a gorgeous western landscape, and not much else. It is enough.
