October Gale (a film with Patricia Clarkson, Scott Speedman, and Tim Roth)
I appreciated October Gale… a thoughtful, poignant drama with a subtle ever-increasing suspense. Patricia Clarkson was outstanding in her portrayal of a grieving widow, and Scott Speedman and Tim Roth superb in their diametrically opposed roles with the commonality each is suffering from tragedy in their lives. Tom (Tim Roth) is ruthless and Roth’s calm detachment from the violence he evinces is perfect for this character.
Beautifully filmed, it possessed a realism due to the pacing, development, and each of the three unique characters and their motivations for doing what they do.
I particularly appreciated viewing a story which relied upon a simple story, a few characters, and a credible situation into which revenge enters.
I liked it, and recommend it.
