"A demonically pensive . . . Bergmanesque work."--Gus Van Sant

Named Best Narrative at Chicago's Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, Eban and Charley touches on the sensitive issue of intergenerational relationships-in this case, between Eban, a 29-year-old ex-soccer coach who returns to his parents' home on the Oregon coast, and Charley, the lonely 15-year-old boy he meets there.

First-time director Bolton tells their story in all its emotional complexity, opting for understatement rather than sensationalism. With an evocative score by Stephin Merritt of Magnetic Fields. (86 mins.)
