Gifted with sometimes-prophetic dreams and a lifelong interest in the paranormal, Sheila (Marin Ireland) is asked to investigate a potential haunting at a Tennessee farmhouse. It’s there she meets Richard (Jim Gaffigan), a recent widower who believes his wife may still be with him. The investigation that ensues — which eventually pulls in Shelia’s son, Owen and his classmate Lucy — forces them to confront the mysteries of their own lives. One of the most acclaimed films to emerge from the Sundance Film Festival’s cutting-edge NEXT sidebar, Light From Light is a balm of a film, bathed in the atmosphere of the misty mountains surrounding the farmhouse and the nighttime soundtrack of the ever-present crickets’ song. Writer-director Paul Harrill’s empathetic work quietly captures the rhythms of his characters’ daily lives, while imbuing them (and their spiritual investigation) with an appreciation of what we gain and risk by being open to possibilities.
Featuring original music by Adam Granduciel and Jon Natchez of The War on Drugs.
