It’s a sweet but never sentimental film that will break your heart in the best possible way. 









...With its themes of rural loneliness and the dislocation that farmers and their families can often feel, The Pretend One feels urgently prescient and of-the-moment. But while that gives the film an added sense of significance, it is the intimacy of The Pretend One that really marks it as something special. The interior world of Charlie (which comes with its own mythology and well-defined sense of logic) is beautifully painted, in strokes of both goofiness and deep sadness, as Hugo’s childlike absurdity twists into something else altogether, sending the film on unexpected narrative detours.

With its superb performances (the truly lovely Geraldine Hakewell and Michael Whalley share a gorgeous chemistry, while the ever masterful David Field does some of his most touching and transcendent work), shimmering cinematography (hats off to Robert C. Morton), and fresh, unforced dialogue (from con-writers, Tony Prescott and James Raue), The Pretend One belies its skinny budget, working perfectly with what it’s got at hand, but never skimping on ambition of concept or vision. It’s a sweet but never sentimental film that will break your heart in the best possible way.
