Decent indie drama.

This is not a bad little indie drama about an intelligent teenager with a talent for writing, who is trapped in a small trailer park in New Mexico. Stuck in the rut of working in a crummy grocery store and caring for her agoraphobic father she repeatedly turns down offers of college placements as she feels she is needed more at home. The story is nothing special but the acting was well above average, and the direction and cinematography from Jason Matzner was superb and the skyline shots of the New Mexico desert were at times jaw droppingly beautiful. If you're a fan of character based indie films then this is well worth a look.
