That twinkle in your eye leaves me mesmerized for days.
No pain of any kind will ever come between us again.
The crying, like a siren, pierces until it disappears.
Oleander is inspired by the 2014 death of Cooper Harris.
A lobster boat captain barely making ends meet is madly in love with his wife, an up and coming artist. Their simple, yet fulfilling, life takes an unexpected turn after the birth of their daughter. We follow the unraveling of their relationship, and the desperate measures they take to win back the life they once had.
Thematically, Oleander asks, which love is the most powerful? Romantic love, the love of your own child, or love for yourself?
Absolutely terrifying, and relatable to first-time parents who feel overwhelmed. Very post-Slacker Linklater. Quietly tumultuous.Anonymous Film Screening Review

“I would describe it as a taut little drama, possibly the darkest black comedy ever or even a meditation on horror, that presents an otherwise ordinary couple who finds themselves facing extraordinary circumstances after the birth of their child.”Anonymous Film Screening Review
