Low Tide

Indie studio/distributor A24 adds this Jersey Shore up-to-no-good drama that was nominated for best feature at Tribeca to its impressive catalogue.

"It’s high summer on the Jersey Shore, and Alan (Keean Johnson), Red (Alex Neustaedter), and Smitty (Daniel Zolghadri) wile away the long hot days making trouble on the boardwalk and breaking into local vacation homes to steal the valuables that fund their antics. But when Alan and his younger brother Peter (Jaeden Martell) find a bag of gold coins in the dunes, they try to hide it from the others, setting off this adventure thriller from first-time filmmaker Kevin McMulllin." (Tribeca Film Festival)

Despite some decent performances by the younger cast members (Martell is particularly good as the straight-arrow Peter, who displays surprising grit), they all register as little more than archetypes.

If “Low Tide” recedes all too fast, it still leaves behind a clear sense that life doesn’t always happen on schedule, and that the hardest part of growing up is figuring out what to share with people along the way.

Still, in addition to establishing a tangible sense of place, McMullin impresses by putting together such a strong ensemble (including comic relief Daniel Zolghadri) and eliciting from them the performances he does.

Low Tide doesn’t express much sentimentality for its Jersey Shore setting, yet it’s still a pleasure to spend some time in it. Part of the film’s spell is how it never specifies an exact year.

McMullins has a flair for both sentimentalizing and de-sentimentalizing a setting, illustrating the comfort his characters take in the boardwalk and the nearby fishing piers as well as the torment of tourist sports cars that suggest unattainable status.

There are some minor pacing issues that hold back “Low Tide”... but this is a confident debut that seems like a film we’ll be looking back at it in just a few years as an early work of at least one major acting talent.
