Resolution (2012)

3.5/4

Resolution is perhaps best enjoyed as I enjoyed it: with no expectations or preconceived notions of the film whatsoever. All I will say is that it revolves around two friends, Michael and Chris, (Peter Cilella and Vinny Curran), the latter of whom is a drug-junkie holed up in a cabin. Michael visits to try and convince him to go to rehab, and when Chris refuses, he is forcibly handcuffed to a radiator and made to go cold turkey. The performances of the two leads, and the rapport and chemistry they show each other affords Resolution the opportunity to grow, incubating a healthy empathy in the audience from the word go, meaning the shifts later in the film are all the more meaningful. One of the most pleasant surprises of recent years.
