Comedy, Romance
The Color Wheel is a funny, quirky dramedy about a sister and brother, JR (Carlen Altman) and Colin (Alex Ross Perry), who bicker and annoy each other on a road trip from hell. This is something I have not seen in a while: a legitimate, bare-bones independent film. Shot in black and white, poorly edited and using inexperienced actors, this shoestring-budget film brings back memories of when young filmmakers scrimped and saved in order to get a script made. At a time when offshoots of larger studios are making movies and calling them “indie,” something like this is a breath of fresh air. It proves that with the drive to do something, pretty much anyone can succeed, despite their limitations. This is a real indie movie!
