Suitably low-key but sometimes under-realized, this drama is fueled by its working-class milieu and a heart-wrenching performance by Hill Harper.
The film feels coolly detached because the story and characters are underdeveloped.
1982 is a ham-fisted morality tale about love, marriage and the fallout of the '80s crack epidemic as though told by someone whose intel on all three came primarily from pulp sources.
So finely and honestly observed for much of its running time, the confidence doesn't seem to quite be there to let the film's most dramatic moments work on their own power without musical or editorial augmentation.
Enough cannot be said for how refreshing it is to see characters like these relate, interact, and grow with one another on screen.
1982 is a strong debut feature with several brilliant scenes that ought to believe in itself a bit more.
[Tommy] Oliver hits all the familiar notes in unfamiliar ways, focusing on the impact of violence and exploitation.
...benefits substantially from the periodic inclusion of electrifying moments...
