Thou Wast Mild and Lovely
First screened in December 2014
Director: Josephine Decker. Cast: Joe Swanberg, Sophie Traub, Robert Longstreet, Kristin Slaysman, Bennett Alderdice, Matt Orme, Geoff Marslett, Brooklyn Shuck, Raleigh Shuck, Erica McClure, Shelley Delaney. Screenplay: Josephine Decker and David Barker.

Twitter Capsule: Decker's second film reiterates tones and structures from debut but rural-Guignol tropes feel hackneyed.

VOR:   Not a good sign to repeat your own tropes so early in a second film. Serious, Tom at the Farm levels of pastoral panic. I just don't see what Richard Brody does.
