Films about dysfunctional families are nothing new and have been explored at SHOUT in each and every year of its existence, whether it was the housewife overcoming abuse in Drool or the father coming to terms with his son’s homosexuality in The Wise Kids. In Naked As We Came, writer and director Richard LeMay takes it to an absorbing new level. After a strange phone call, Laura and her brother Elliot rush to their family’s mesmerizing country home. Once there, they discover that their estranged mother is dying of cancer and being cared for by Ted, a gorgeous young groundskeeper. Finding themselves stuck together in the home, the family start bringing to light years-old secrets that have haunted them individually and forced a wedge between their familial bonds. And, when Elliot turns to Ted for emotional support, he discovers that the stranger might have ulterior motives. This well-paced and haunting exploration of regret is a welcomed addition to the SHOUT line-up. Starring Ryan Vigilant, Benjamin Weaver, Karmine Alers, and S. Lue McWilliams.
