Sundance 2013 Review: 'C.O.G.'

I haven't read the David Sedaris essay that serves as the inspiration for C.O.G., but I can only hope it's as compassionate and moving as the film that's been made by writer-director Kyle Patrick Alvarez. This drama about a young man who travels to Oregon to get away from it all features a superb performance from Denis O'Hare but, really, the whole cast is excellent. This is a lovely, small-scale story that grows richer as it moves along. My review is up at Screen International.
