Old Glory, a new film by Doug Inman, is taking a Remi Award for best Drama at the WorldFest Film Festival this week. In the film Hannah (Kristina Pilskaia) is viewing her military father’s personal messages recorded and addressed to her before his death. The deeper into the viewing she goes, the further the family drama reaches its culmination, leaving the viewers in awe and emotional turmoil. With each scene, the film sends us meaningful signals and reminds us how immensely important it is to never underestimate the realm of family values. The story is not only well played and well directed, it’s simply a piece that the audience can relate to. Without revealing to much of the story, I can only say that you won’t be able to help getting so into the movie, and you’ll be on the edge of your seat waiting to see what will happen in the end. Old Glory will be further presented and screened in different film festivals which makes me certain of its success evolving even further.
Additionally, the amazing acting truly makes the film. This dramatic story undeniably has its merits thanks to the film’s acting talent – the acclaimed Kristina Pilskaia’s expressive performance transforms a role of a seemingly careless teenager into something much more empathetic, making this loss-of-father family drama feel extremely natural and emotionally accessible. We are already familiar with Kristina Pilskaia’s success by her outstanding performances in Russia (Cinema Emperor, 365), but she keeps surprising us with her versatility by going international.
