HIDE YOUR SMILING FACES
Directed by DANIEL PATRICK CARBONE/2013/81mins.
With Ryan Jones and Nathan Varnson
An atmospheric exploration of life and death in rural America, as seen through the distorted lens of youth, Hide Your Smiling Faces vividly depicts the young lives of two brothers as they abruptly come of age through the experience of a friend’s mysterious death. The event ripples under the surface of their town, unsettling the brothers and their friends in a way that they can’t fully understand. Once familiar interactions begin to take on a macabre tone in light of the tragic accident, leading Eric and Tommy to retreat into their wild surroundings. As the two brothers vocally face the questions they have about mortality, they simultaneously hold their own silent debates within their minds that build into seemingly insurmountable moral peaks. Hide Your Smiling Faces is a true, headlong glimpse into the raw spirit of youth, as well as the calluses that one often develops as a result of an unfiltered past.
"One of the best films of 2013 so far."-IndieWire Staff
"CARBONE’S EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE DEBUT ANNOUNCES THE ARRIVAL OF A NEW CINEMATIC TALENT…If a film feels like a journey with velocity, despite a lack of action/reaction plot devices, then it has succeeded as cinema. Few directors understand this; even fewer can achieve it. The lyrical approach of Malick and Carlos Reygadas, resistant to plot and dialogue, favoring nature as a character, is a style that is in pursuit of truths that are beyond the grasp of literature. It takes guts, talent and vision to walk into those woods. Hide Your Smiling Faces makes its way through, scratched, shirt torn but hungry, and ready for another adventure. Out of the 12 North American premieres I saw at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, it was by far the most accomplished. "-Mike S. Ryan Hammer to Nail
"HIDE YOUR SMILING FACES IS REMARKABLE for the dread it keeps at a slow simmer from the first shot to the last."-Amy Taubin Film Comment
