Empire Falls – Filtered
A drama that swoops in on Empire Falls, an economically depressed mill town in Maine, and lifetime resident Miles Roby (Harris), who’s run the town’s top restaurant for some twenty years. Miles is surrounded by his newly thin wife (Hunt), meddling father (Newman), and hostile boss (Woodward).
“Empire Falls” is a story about a man and his dream of starting his own restaurant while dealing with a controlling boss at the Empire grill he manages, a wife who left him and a daughter that is dealing with problems in school. The movie itself is hard to focus on as it seems to leave out a lot of important details. The first half of the film the viewer struggles to figure out what the point of the movie is and by the end you only think you might know what the point was. This is not recommended for a family viewing due to the excessive violence.
