Katherine Lindberg’s feature debut takes place in a small Iowa farm town where sexual infidelities and other duplicitous acts bubble into violence. We begin with a woman waiting for her husband to come home from his affair with the town sheriff’s wife, and the tension simply mounts from there. While beautifully shot and well acted, the mix of American gothic and evoked Greek tragedy doesn’t quite work, is too easy to spot, and the story loses power as it moves toward its predictable end.
