Sun Don't Shine (Amy Seimetz, 2013)

Posted on the 17 April 2013 by Jake Cole @notjustmovies
Amy Seimetz's Sun Don't Shine adds a rough edge to Badlands, dragging primal emotions of fear, rage and desperation out of its characters as they threaten to give themselves away at every turn. Kate Lyn Sheil's performance, raw and flushed with jealous rage and childish regression, collides with Kentucker Audley's more constrained and strategic, if still instinctual and spiky, to make a volatile mix. The plot falls into places slowly and deliberately, albeit in such a way it almost seems secondary to their tense interactions and coping behaviors, and even its major reveal serves primarily as more fodder for their verbal attacks on each other.
