Blow the Man Down review – a strange slice of northern New England life A Female Shanty
Blow the Man Down was written and directed by Bridget Savage Cole and Danielle Krudy (The Distance Between the Apple and the Tree), and they wrote a script filled with quirky, but not overly so, characters that are folded into an interesting story. The basic premise is about women, young and old, who, for the lack of a better term, pull themselves up by the bootstraps while covering up some very dark secrets. The film’s main plot revolves around adolescent sisters Mary Beth (Homeland’s Morgan Saylor) and her sister Priscilla Connelly (Romper Stomper’s Sophie Lowe) trying to keep their house afloat after their mother’s death. They then have a run-in with a local shady character, Gorski (Interrogation’s Ebon Moss-Bachrach) that turns grisly.; they attempt to cover it up, which opens the door to the town’s seedy history.
