The road to recovery has been paved in blood for Rose Marlow — her own included. But as she’s tormented by the memories of her traumatic injury, she fights to keep herself alive. Cole, a mysterious stranger, comes into her life and offers help, which is a challenge for her to accept. But hiding below the surface, she worries that now that she has someone, she’s not the only one with something to hide.
A film by Renée Elizabeth Lavoie, Caprice becomes less part of our reality by the end of the film as colors become washed out, then dark, then even single hues and tones. It’s very much a low-budget shot on digital video film, but don’t hold that against it. I think that Lavoie has some definite ideas brewing here and I can’t wait to see what this effort leads to as her work matures.
Caprice is now playing Salem Horror Fest as part of the Showcase of Massachusetts Filmmakers series. When we have streaming info, we’ll share it in this post. For now, you can follow that link to buy a festival badge and check out several other films during October.
