"Love and Roadkill" Review
John David Allen, a longtime editor for the Merchant Ivory team, paints a vivid portrayal of you and I and the words and actions, preconceived notions and teachings that can keep us apart or, if we have the courage to reach out, actually bring us together.
As Joyce, Madeleine Potter quietly blossoms as her character slowly, steadily reaches through her fear towards a glimmer of hope in humanity.
Likewise, Bill Camp gives Eddie just the perfect hint of mystery. Without a hint of force or manipulation, Camp's Eddie intuitively reaches out, withdraws, then respectfully waits for that hint of connection.
"Love and Roadkill" features the stellar cinematography of Martin Ahlgren, along with a musical score by Giancarlo Vulcano that perfectly companions this emerging butterfly of a film.
