It is rare that a debut feature comes around quite like this. Lance Hammer writes and directs this precise, moving, delicately modulated look at lives teetering on the brink. A boy in the Mississippi delta struggles to come to terms with the death of his father, while his mother and uncle squabble over what to make of what’s left of their tentative family bonds. Infused with a style that seems drawn more from European cinema than contemporary American independent films, Ballast will knock you off your feet.
