The Hottest State
Love stories are abundant in film. It's always interesting to see one that is not the classic formula, where the boy and girl are not Barbie and Ken, meant to live in happily ever after. The Hottest State is the story of William, a young man with a damaged heart from the divorce of his parents. He meets Sarah and falls hard. Sarah is the realistic one, William is the romantic. The combination makes an interesting story. It is a story of discovery, obsession, disappointment and growth. Shot well, with an eye for angle and color. A solid, thoughtful story of romance and growth.
