I was invited to attend a screening of Divergence at the RI Film Festival today (thanks ProFM!). It was a pleasure! I chatted with producer Meg Sudlik (and her Dad) and director, Patrick Donnelly, in the lobby of the theater before the film. This pensive drama is an excellent examination of a wounded soldier, home from Iraq to recover from injuries. The view is realistic and unglamorous. There is drama, there are women, there are friends, there is responsibility. Donnelly has a way with the camera. Many times I thought, "how'd he do that?", beautifully filmed. As I left the theater I said to Meg and Patrick "well done!"
