Could be very good
The poem on which this is based ('Herbert White' by Frank Bidart, http://famouspoetsandpoems.com/poets/frank_bidart/poems/3282) is fantastic and Shannon is perfectly cast as Herbert, anyone who has seen his work in either Shotgun Stories or Revolutionary Road knows this -- one of the most interesting and undervalued (though that's beginning to change) actors working now.
Also, this was shot in and around Suffolk, VA and is therefore of especial interest to me as I live in Chesapeake, a city directly adjacent to Suffolk, and am familiar with the area. Much sprawling farmland and woods. A great location for such a film
Sadly, as this is a short film, it will be diffcult to see. Likely will be screened only at a few festivals. Perhaps a special feature on the DVD/Blu-ray release of Franco's first feature film as a director, if we're lucky
