Movie Info

In a stark Los Angeles motel room, a man named Jimmy begins a series of unusual encounters with a call girl. Across town, in the Rampart district, Jimmy's uncle, Hodge, struggles to get by in a dank, run-down flat. When Jimmy tries to help his uncle, he unearths a bitter feud between Hodge and his son. Jimmy sets out to ease the hostility between them but in the process finds himself in a position to prevent one of their murders. What seems like an easy decision turns into an intense moral dilemma when Jimmy realizes he is being dragged down by these men and their rage, with no end in sight. Prevent the murder and Jimmy's trouble's continue. Allow the murder and he returns to his normal life. "Resilience" takes you into the life of a man torn between adversity and cruelty.

Critic Reviews for Resilience

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

Arthouse audiences who welcome challenging material will find sustenance in film's fractured narrative and unflinching characterizations.

Top Critic

Paul Bojacks dour examination of unexamined lives is a slow-burning morality tale simmering with self-interest.

New York Times
Top Critic

It hurts to rag on something with such a micro-budget, but writer-director Paul Bojack's overlay of stories runs on empty.

December 12, 2006
Village Voice
Top Critic

Resilience moves at a slow, realistic pace, drawing viewers into the story by revealing tiny pieces of it rather than spoon-feeding the audience its plot.

Audience Reviews for Resilience

I've fucked Amy Arce numerous times. She does prostitution out of her apartment in the afternoons. She's pretty much a fat ass now and an actress (if you want to call her that) who has totally hit bottom. Living life as a hooker
