Thou Wast Mild and Lovely

Rated NR 76 minutes 2014

On a farm in rural Kentucky, father Jeremiah and daughter Sarah squabble together like young puppies. Over crisp, verdant images of nature, of animals, streams and puddles, a mysterious, sensual female voice tells of her lover, who may be a person or may be the whole world. Enter Akin, there to help out for the summer. He's left his wife and child at home - and taken off his wedding ring as a precaution. Soon the three of them are circling each other, watching, feeling watched and knowing that their watching is not going unwatched. Within this atmosphere, a charged romance develops between Sarah and Akin that carries both an erotic tension and vague feeling of menace. When Akin's wife Drew comes for a visit, the situation explodes, harmless fantasies giving way to a violent nightmare.
