Taking the long way home

`Hamilton' watches from a respectful distance a day in the life of a young couple

review B+

October 06, 2006|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,SUN MOVIE CRITIC

Quiet and contemplative, Hamilton does something very brave: It allows audience members to draw their own conclusions.

A slice-of-life drama that follows a young unmarried man and woman as they drift through a hot summer day in Northeast Baltimore, Hamilton, opening today for a weeklong run at The Rotunda, has the courage to tell its audience -- very little. The result is like looking through a window at a couple of people who don't know you're there ... and what's more, don't care.

Hamilton Starring Stephanie Vizzi, Chris Myers. Written and directed by Matthew Porterfield. Unrated. Time 64 minutes.
