George Washington B+
Regional filmmaker David Gordon Green makes his feature-directing debut with this impressive morality tale, offering an unsparing look at a racially diverse group of adolescent friends, growing up in rural North Carolina.
After telling a lie in order to cover up the death of one of their own, they must cope with loss and death and face the consequences of their actions.
Shooting in semi-documentary mode, Green uses uncontrolled environments, natural lighting, and a cast of nonprofessional actors to tell his story, which bears slight resemblance to River’s Edge.
