Ryan Barton-Grimley’s intriguingly enigmatic turn gives the story true dramatic complexity. His increasingly disturbing character will make you think twice before reflectively uttering that by-now shopworn phrase, “Thank you for your service.”
Repatriation is a well-made and engrossing human drama and packs a punch in its central performance and controversial spin on the genre.
Repatriation is a smart and well-made film, jam-packed full of drama and interesting characters, none more so than Barton-Grimley’s Chad. It’s highly recommended.
Barton-Grimley’s performance as Chad is nothing short of brilliant. Chad (or I should say Barton-Grimely) pulls us in at the very beginning and we find him charming even after he lets us see who he really is.
Friendly advice for everyone reading this review: if you ever have the chance to see ‘Repatriation’, go see it! It is an amazing movie about how life works, and how we can make life (in one way or another) work in our best interest.
A lot of films are coming out that deal with PTSD and show the homecoming as something of a burden or adjustment, but this film makes you really want to dive in and check it out.
