review by
Mike Haberfelner

Patricia (Barbara Bleier) and Henry (Liam Mitchell) have been married for quite some decades now, and have withered storms, like him being responsible for the accident that ended her dancing career, and her being a bit too close to their mutual friend Julian (Austin Pendleton) - and to be quite clear, these two things are not related - so it seems nothing could shatter their relationship. And then some terrorists atom-bomb LA (Patricia and Henry live on the East Coast, thus are safe for now), and the US is a bit too quick to retaliate rather than try to let reason take the driver's seat - and suddenly, the one thing nobody wanted, a nuclear war, is inevitable - and while all residents in their area are urged to evacuate, Patricia insists on staying, against not only his will but also the will of their grown up "adopted" son (David Johnson) - and it soon becomes clear, in a situation like this it's hard to figure out what's the right and the wrong, the best and the worst thing to do from the get-go ...

 

Now Sunset's a mighty interesting film for sure: Based on what I would term a worst case scenario this is by no means a spectacle movie, nor a piece of speculative fiction in the broader sense (in the more narrow sense, all fiction is speculative of course), but it's a very humane movie about very basic things, like love, home, giving up, marching on, told in a very engaging way, centered on two characters who might not be the most likely movie heroes but who get the notion across thanks to great writing and great performances (same goes for the rest of the cast). Sure, some might be scared off by the deliberate slow pace of the thing or the lack of actual on-screen action - but those who can see beyond that will be richly rewarded.
