Don't miss, at the beginning of Ballast, the shiny, nailed on numbers that mark the address of the modest-to-ramshackle Mississippi house: 69.  It takes a while to realize that it’s a visualization of twins in the womb–what an idea!  And it's key to the story, a beginning beyond a beginning.  Inventive storytelling leads us through this movie with a sure hand.  Watch for shiny things.  Directed by Lance Hammer.

Ballast is at Cinema Village and The Brooklyn Heights Cinema.
