Movie Info

WELCOME TO PINE HILL is an extension of Miller's earlier short film PRINCE/WILLIAM about an unexpected encounter surrounding a lost dog. Blurring the line between documentary and fiction, PINE HILL follows that short's protagonist Shannon, a reformed drug dealer who is now an insurance claims adjuster, in the days following a grim medical diagnosis. Shannon, portrayed in an extraordinarily intimate performance by first time actor Shannon Harper, sets out to make peace with those around him and in turn find his own peace beyond the cacophony of New York City.

  • Mixes real-life situations and characters with fictionalized narrative threads to create a highly authentic slice-of-life drama.

  • At times the improvised dialogue seems too schematic and superfluous, especially in view of such exploratory and observant handheld camera work. Otherwise, though, this is wonderful stuff.

  • A tender cinema verite take on one man's quest for spiritual redemption.

  • Writer-director Keith Miller's existential tone and Harper's gentle approach and giant soul turn this New York story with a final twist into something special.

  • [It] relies on understatement and indirection to arrive at a powerful and resonant meaning.

    Feb 28, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Welcome to Pine Hill precariously navigates the line between representing the perspective of a black male and projecting a white man's guilt onto it.
