Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A young boy drifts listlessly between the steady blur of his day-to-day life and the intrusive allure of nocturnal dreams held as an ideal. Amidst the insistence of ordinary life there seems something both more reasonable and modest waiting behind the next corner, turning the simple process of waking up into a search for something to hold onto. Thinking to himself will the school dance ever come, will next week sort itself out, won't it just pass by . . . his hopes and well wishes emanate the growing promise of coming despair.

Rendering youth as a languid fever dream, I Grew Up In Amaltherey Hill is a bleak examination of the fury bred from neglect and the misguided idolization created of hopelessness.
