Movie Info

A reverie of images and sound, Below Dreams loosely follows the narratives of three very different people Elliott, newly arrived from New York, single mother Leann, and unemployed father Jamaine-as they negotiate New Orleans' streets, neighborhoods, and residents in search of an upward path to fulfill their dreams. But as each character experiences the city's (and life's) realities, it becomes clear these hopes and dreams are no longer possible, and that with change must also come sacrifice. Garrett Bradley's impressive debut feature is shot verité documentary style to provide an unpolished, affecting realness as we become immersed in the characters' individual challenges and quests amid the relaxed, yet demanding urban backdrop of the Crescent City.

Critic Reviews for Below Dreams

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (1)

  • With an impressionistic style and mostly nonprofessional actors, what emerges is a handful of adequate scenes that constitute an assortment of notes toward a film rather than a final draft.

  • At its exhilarating best, it's a gritty and lyrical portrait of lives that are too messy and tender to be summed up in consumer-centric notions of the Millennial generation.

  • As the waves of this cinematic dream break, the profundities left behind come not from character arcs, but observed states of being that feel subjectively experienced.

  • [Below Dreams] feels about three or four Sundance workshop sessions away from coming to fruition.
