Storyline

A study in family dysfunction, this intense crime story revolves around a series of interviews with inmate, Joel Stabler, who is being examined by a psychiatrist charged with determining whether Joel is fit to stand trial. As the narrative rotates back and forth from present day to 15 years earlier, we begin to fill in the real story of what led Joel to where he is today. By the end of the film, much of what Joel has said is called into question and the audience is left to piece together what really happened. BLOOD & CIRCUMSTANCE is a psychological puzzle box, filled with questions in a world where there are no easy answers. Written by Anonymous

Well written, leads you down a path and then hits you with a surprise ending
8 August 2014 | by rosshmcintoshSee all my reviews

This is a movie gem in my opinion, because any movie that fools me, in a good way, is on my "like" list, and this one had me fooled to the end. It is set in Virginia, around the Richmond area and deals with a family murder that in itself is nothing new, but the movie starts with an inmate interview that unravels a story line that at times is a little confusing to follow, but makes sense when it all comes together at the end.

The movie won a local Indie award, which was well deserved given the quality of the screenplay, the acting, and the lack of budget which is unnoticeable.

I am looking forward to seeing the next movie from this team. Definitely recommend putting this on your own watch list.
