Autumn (Alexis Day) feels her relationship's a tad empty, with her
boyfriend Thomas (Douglas Reese) feeling somewhat detached, especially
when she wants to talk about deep subjects like her lack of faith of late
or the like.
Meanwhile, Autumn's brother Ewan (Trace Hazelbaker) just
can't get over his former girlfriend Grace (Joi Itapson), and to win her
back he records what he figures is the perfect song - thing is their
relationship seems to be beyond being saved by small gestures ...
you're at all familiar with the films of amateur-auteur Douglas Reese,
you'll probably not expect much action and adventure from this one,
instead, Migraine is a beautiful example of "less is more", a
deliberately slow film that also doesn't spoonfeed simple answers to
complex problems but that has its story emerge in a subtle way relying
more on gestures and the power of its imagery than actual dialogue, which
perfectly allows the audience come up with their own conclusions.
