The Details - Trailer Trailer


Jeff Lang is the morally questionable protagonist in this bizarre comedy. After 10 years of marriage with his wife Nealy, he begins to realise that their virtually loveless relationship is on the rocks, and all it took was an invasion of hungry raccoons who destroy the Lang garden and home after discovering a large number of worms in the undergrowth. Jeff develops a fixation on exterminating the raccoons and, along the way, seems to begin to exterminate his own life as he is drawn into a world of infidelity; namely with his wacky neighbour Lila. However, things do not go exactly as he had planned and he seems to wind up destroying his home worse than their garden pests.

'The Details' is a peculiarly dark comedy that certainly has plenty of nervous laughter moments but definitely leaves us feeling uncomfortable seeing the world from a character we don't particularly trust. It is the perfect story about the morally corrupt humans of the world who are not necessarily bad people, merely just instinctive and desperate people who rarely take time to contemplate the feelings of those around them - not dissimilar to the temperaments of the raccoons they so despise. Directed and written by the award winning Jacob Aaron Estes ('Mean Creek'), 'The Details' is set to hit US movie theaters on November 2nd 2012.

Mean Creek Review


Good
This is a debut film of some earnestness that latches into a theme of natural and immediate dramatic interest: revenge on the bully. Though first time writer-director Jacob Aaron Estes attempts to provide complexities and a twist of fate to make his story less predictable, the attempt is marred by a one-note script that makes certain the audience gets every nuance of it. A little more confidence in allowing the audience do some of the work might have tempered the unavoidable sense of simplicity.

In the first frames of the movie we're looking through the lens of a digital hand camera. We appear to be on a school playground as a hefty teenager frames the camera on a basketball court to record his lack of athletic coordination. Suddenly, another boy appears in view, the scene goes dark and we cut to the production camera.
