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.
