Synopsis:
This stunning first feature by 25-year-old director David Gordon Green captures one hot summer in the lives of a group of children in a poor rural North Carolina town.
When an innocent game goes horrifically wrong, the kids find themselves caught up in a tragic lie, catapulted into a world of adult choices. A hauntingly beautiful, warm, compassionate and humorous film that lingers in the mind long after the closing credits.

Good Indie Movie - George Washington review by TE

Spoiler Alert
30/11/2017

This is a fine depiction of the lives of a group of black (and blue collar white) children. There is a pervasive sense of abandonment and a wait for something to happen. When a tragic "something" does happen there is a very realistic retreat into despair on the one hand and wild fantasy on the other.

The film doesn't dictate emotions, it presents a story and leaves it to us to draw conclusions. A very assured and absorbing film.

A well crafted indie - George Washington review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
21/05/2009

George Washington may not be to everyone's taste and even die hard indie fans may find it a little hard going, but if you like gently paced artistic films then it's worth a look.
