♥ ♥ ♥ 1/2
Death, Secrets and Regrets sums up the Dig Two Graves film. After the death of her brother Jake (Samantha Isler) shows us the lengths she will go through to get him back!
This film will remind you, that life is all about choices! It takes us on a journey of a 13-year-old girl named Jake (Samantha Isler) and her grandfather Sheriff Waterhouse (Ted Levine) and how she is heading down the same road in life as her grandfather…. the road of regret! Although they will not make the same mistakes, they both will decide to make a choice that may haunt them for the rest of their lives!
Shot in a small Southern Illinois town Samantha Isler (Jake) naturally displays a lonely little girl navigating her way through life after her brother’s death. She did and amazing job of conveying grief and loss, every moment she was on-screen she demonstrated that she simply wanted things to go back to the way they were! I applaud her for getting this message across without being melodramatic.
Ted Levine delivers remarkable work as Sheriff Waterhouse his chemistry on-screen with Jake is heartwarming. He knew what she needed even if she did not vocalize it, he effortlessly exhibited balance with this role. By displaying the tough Sheriff that will take on three men alone to a loving grandfather providing Jake with sound advice and a warm hug. It was always a real treat when they were on-screen together. They did an amazing job of showcasing the true meaning of support!
The Dig Two Graves film really draws you in from the suspenseful start, the beautiful nature landscapes, and fitted transitions from light to darkness! I enjoyed the film and really loved that it made me think! While watching, I constantly put myself in the shoes of the characters and found that I repeatedly asked myself …. what would I have done? Although, we truly will never know until we are in those situations. I would only hope that we choose to make peace with our past instead of allowing it to haunt us.
