From IMDb: “DEDALUS is a fiction triptych portraying community, love, and loss. In rural Iowa, a grocery cashier watches helplessly as classmates conceal their act of sexual violence against his teenaged step-sister. Will she keep the child? A hustler tricks for food, shelter, and intimacy during a winter in New York City. A young woman takes him in, but nothing satiates his unrequited love for an older gay client. Mortality compels a father to leave his home in Los Angeles and move in with his daughter. Jonah Greenstein’s gorgeously shot feature debut laces loneliness with beauty to create a film of startling cinematic intimacy.”

Poster Rating: –

Review: There was no poster immediately available for my review. Should one become available in the future, this section will be updated.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: Reading the synopsis, it becomes clear that the film will be difficult to sell in the span of 2 minutes for a trailer, which is meant to entice viewers to see the film. This one doesn’t quite work never giving the audience anything to latch on to or to root for.

Oscar Prospects:
