Movie Info

Upon returning to his rural Georgia hometown to attend his father's funeral, a man is disturbed to discover that his childhood friend has been kept locked in the basement by his abusive brother for nearly twenty years. Roy Clemens moved away from Haralson, Georgia many years ago, but when his father dies he must return to his hometown to make funeral arrangements and tend to the family store. Later, while attempting to deliver a package, Roy discovers that his childhood friend Sammy has suffered a most cruel fate over the previous two decades. Sammy's brother Harold is a bitter, drunken tyrant who has forced his blind younger brother into servitude, rarely allowing him any real contact with the outside world. Despite the fact that Harold's girlfriend Kathleen and best friend Earl don't particularly agree with the way that Harold treats Sammy, they continue to remain loyal to the abusive older sibling due in part to the fact that he has cornered the local microbrew market. As Roy does his best to ease Sammy's suffering and provide him with hope for a brighter future, old friend begin to reconnect over promising dreams of a brighter future.

Audience Reviews for The Unseen

I wasn't sure how I felt about this, but the acting was good so I decided I would stick it out. And then after I had watched half of the movie, I had a strong feeling of deja vu... and realized the damn thing had started over from the beginning. Rather than try to figure out where I had left off, I just shut it off. What I saw had some great performances, but I'm just not willing to seek out where I should be in the film. If this ever gets fixed in instant watch, I'll probably give it another shot.

An interesting movie with a highly touching story plot. This is a story about two who have been best friends in childhood, but after one incident, grew apart. As adults, they are trying to grasp the concepts in their differences. Fascinating movie. Gale Harold is definitely something, good performance. Definitely worthy.
