A Dim Valley is part gay stoner comedy and part meditation on mysticism and love
Writer-director Brandon Colvin‘s A Dim Valley is a tough film to classify. It’s part comedy, part drama, part dreamy pastoral – a film that bends and blends genres and tones in unique ways. It’s got slapstick gags, weird magic, smoldering romance, tragic moments and much more. In other words, something for everyone.
Ecology graduate students Albert and Ian (Whitmer Thomas and Zach Weintraub) spend the summer collecting flora and fauna samples with their lonely, curmudgeonly adviser, Dr. Clarence Rumble (Robert Longstreet).
At his woodsy cabin, close quarters foster comical friction and unexpected bonds between the two young men. Like ethereal bolts of lighting, three enigmatic, freewheeling backpackers – Rose (Rachel McKeon), Reed (Feathers Wise) and Iris (Rosalie Lowe) – crash into their lives.
As the backpackers push the men to open up, the mystery of their arrival deepens. Where did they come from? Why are they here? The answers, we soon find, are fantastically intertwined with the scientists’ transcendent fates.
Part hilarious queer stoner comedy and part transcendental meditation on mysticism and love, A Dim Valley is a delightful ethereal journey into the cycle of love.
