Higher Ground (2011)

Director: Vera Farmiga. Cast: Vera Farmiga, Joshua Leonard, Dagmara Dominczyk, John Hawkes, Taissa Farmiga. 109 min. Rated R. Drama.

Vera Farmiga's (The Departed, Up in the Air) directorial debut is a promising one. She directs herself as a small-town girl brought up in a setting where there's no other ideological possibility than becoming a firm Christian believer. But then without any distraction from the world outside this setting, she starts doubting her faith, because of all the unanswered questions. The script makes the wise choice of ending without a definite conclusion, and leaves it up to the audience's interpretation of events to decide who's side they're on. Looking forward to see what else Farmiga has in store for us.
