Don’t Tell a Soul: Directed by Alex McAulay. With Jack Dylan Grazer, Fionn Whitehead, Rainn Wilson, Mena Suvari. Two thieving teenage brothers, stealing money to help their sick mom, match wits with a troubled security guard stuck at the bottom of a forgotten well.
“This is a story of two brothers, the older one of whom is a homicidal maniac, who rob 10,000 that just happens to be sitting in a very vulnerable spot for some unknown reason. They are out in the woods, and the money is in a tent that is being fumigated it seems.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhen they leave, theyu0026#39;re in the middle of the woods, and for some reason a security guard appears and chases them.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis basically comes down to a u0026quot;one characteru0026quot; in Hell story. The younger brother is surrounded by maniacs wherever he goes. The story is through his eyes, and thatu0026#39;s fair, because he does have to make difficult decisions.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAny more would be a spoiler. Suffice to say, this is unfortunately set in what is supposed to be a real world, but itu0026#39;s more a Twilight Zone arena. However, if weu0026#39;re seeing it through the eyes of the one interesting character, then that suffices if one doesnu0026#39;t expect too much.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe biggest problem is that the writer sets this in Louisville, and heu0026#39;s obviously oblivious to Louisville. There is NOWHERE in Louisville that is this isolated. Louisville is too densely populated throughout to have an open woods arena that no one ventures into. It just cannot happen. The parks in Louisville are hardly what can be called u0026quot;parksu0026quot;. Theyu0026#39;re crowded beyond redemption. Even the less traveled ones donu0026#39;t have the solitude needed for this story line. You have to go at least 20 miles outside the county to have a longshot chance for that.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eStill, there are maniacs like the older brother, sadists who look for excuses to hurt others, abounding in Louisville, so that much is true.”
