In this limbo world, Ryan once again talks, and he is reunited with his Grandpa Randolph (Armin Mueller-Stahl). Ryan also befriends Melanie Lewis (Hayden Panettiere), who provides him with additional emotional support. Will Ryan and Melanie be able to move beyond the transitional realm, and, if so, where will they end up?

Audience Reviews for The Dust Factory

  • Dec 18, 2008
    Two charming kids and the boy's grandfather spend time in limbo between life and death. It is a strange fantasy world that seems free of trouble except for a creepy circus, which is named the dust factory. The youngsters amidst falling for each other are forced to confront some philosophy about life and death, pleasure and pain. Some of it is thought-provoking. Many of the special effects suggest a fantasy world I've never seen before in a movie, but it is obvious the effects had a low budget. Artistically it seemed the writer/director thought they were being clever dealing with these deep issues, but I was uncomfortable with the death themed circus and many of the grandfather's lessons were nonsensical.
