(Matt Wilkins, 2011, USA, Blu-ray, 92 min)
Director in attendance!
With a tour-de-force performance from actress Frances Hearn, Marrow is an intense psychological drama about ordinary horror. Seattle-based writer/director Matt Wilkins’ wrenching drama dives into the deepest, most secret places in the life of a family in this haunting exploration of mortality and regeneration. Disturbed by the noises of something in the walls of her house, a mother (Hearn) struggles to regain balance in her life after the traumatic death of her father (Todd Jefferson Moore). It is her conflict with her son (Wiley Wilkins), however, that reveals the deeper wounds festering in the family dynamic.
"Seattle Weekly Pick: Wilkins is at his best churning up the volatile emotional space in scenes that rise and fall unexpectedly and authentically. ...There are genuine moments of connection and love." —Seattle Weekly
