Storyline

Poetic, mysterious and visually elegant, Christopher Holmes' debut feature forges an impressionistic coming-of-age narrative as prismatic as the ever-changing strand of shoreline the story inhabits. With refreshing sincerity and an unassuming sense of humor, Lost Colony considers the lives of conflicted teen Loren, his hyper-protective mother Patricia, and others like them along the Outer Banks of North Carolina's coast- site of the first attempted English settlement in the New World. As Loren begins to sense the widening distance between himself and his expecting girlfriend Ramona, a near tragic accident threatens to capsize their world and forces a reckoning with the delicate mythology he has crafted to make sense of it. A searchlight cast upon the earliest traces of America and the mystery of settlers vanished, Lost Colony scans a once virgin watershed for signs of life. Written by Christopher Holmes

a beautiful character meditation
14 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. I loved it. After watching it through, the opening with the balloons had even more weight to it. Nothing was spoon-fed to me as a viewer. It was gorgeously shot. The choices that Christopher Holmes and Christopher Schneider made perfectly stated the atmosphere. The way they worked with color and framing completely complimented the pacing. Watched it on Blu Ray, but I'm sure the DVD will do it justice. Holmes is a filmmaker to watch for in the future. There was a wonderful Terrence Malick feel to it and it was poetic character piece I enjoyed from start to finish. Joshua Brady did an outstanding job in the role. Can't recommend this enough for film fans. Your'e in for a hidden gem.
