Red White and Blue
Red, White & Blue is a drama that turns into a revenge drama about 3
characters whose lives collide.
Erica (Amanda Fuller) is a woman who floats
through life without much care, going from sexual partner to sexual
Nate (Australian actor Noah Taylor) is a drifter
and former soldier (or so he says) who moves into the same apartment block
as Erica and takes a shine to her, not necessarily in a sexual way, which
Erica does not take well as she has never had someone who wants to care
for her. He gets her a job at a hardware store, but she continues to fuck
every man in the place until one rapes her in which Nate comes to her
Meanwhile, Frankie (Marc Senter), a guitarist in
a band with his friends, is helping his mother beat cancer by giving her
his blood. His mother's cancer goes into remission, but then he finds out
that he is HIV positive, hence giving it to his mother. As we learnt
earlier, he got this from having sex with Erica.
Frankie goes after Erica, kidnapping her from a
restaurant. After imprisoning her, his mother dies, causing him to fly
into a rage and he stabs and kills Erica. But, all the while Nate has been
looking for Erica and he's not happy...
An intense and at times extremely violent film,
but a telling tale about people just trying to get by. It's extremely well
acted particularly by Noah Taylor, who I wish did more work. And no
punches are pulled here, recommended if you don't mind it being full on.
The Disc includes
a brief deleted scene of Amanda Fuller flashing.
