Movie Info

Mourning the sudden death of his parents, Daniel invites his childhood friends up to their lake house in an attempt to relive the glory days of their youth -- whether they like it or not. Things take a turn for the worse when it becomes clear that none of his friends share his nostalgia for the good old days -- and his ex-girlfriend shows up with a new fiancé. But as the night progresses, secrets are confessed, romances are rekindled, and a particularly epic game of Whiskey Slaps is played. (C) Tribeca

Lowell shows great sensitivity in creating that collective mood, and expressing it through a large, diverse ensemble.

November 17, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Any interesting comment or funny remark must have happened off-camera.

November 13, 2014 | Full Review…

Scenes flirt with cliché, yet the writing has spark (one very funny sequence cuts among radically different interpretations of the previous night's revelries), and Tim Naylor's photography is pretty.

November 13, 2014 | Full Review…

In sticking with seven friends and one outsider/interloper, Lowell hews so close to the reunion-film formula he ends up stifling anything new that may otherwise have resulted.

compared to other low-budget indie dramas, Beside Still Waters is distinctive, and not just because of its choice to shoot on celluloid.

June 10, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

This could be a satire of an entitled generation if the characters weren't so vapid.
