Sun Don’t Shine

Sun Don’t Shine

Directed by Amy Seimetz • 2012 • United States
Starring Kate Lyn Sheil, Kentucker Audley, A. J. Bowen

Written and directed by Amy Seimetz, this tantalizingly enigmatic, sun-kissed noir follows Crystal (Kate Lyn Sheil) and her boyfriend Leo (Kentucker Audley) on a tense and mysterious road trip through the desolate yet hauntingly beautiful landscape of central Florida. From the outset, the purpose of their journey is unclear, but as the couple travels up the Gulf Coast past an endless panorama of mangrove fields, trailer parks, and cookie-cutter housing developments, the disturbing details begin to emerge, revealing Crystal’s sinister past and the pair’s troubling future. Filmed on location in the environs of Seimetz’s hometown of St. Petersburg, SUN DON’T SHINE is a simmering work of pulp poetry driven by its powerful performances and eerily evocative setting.
