The Silver Screen Unforgettable performances in ‘Hellion’

Posted: Friday, July 4, 2014 12:45 am

Former “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul (“Need for Speed”) has certainly gotten my attention with his performance in the new film “Hellion.” Written, directed and based on her short film of the same name, Kat Candler delivers a rousing and emotional look at the struggle of young men trying to overcome tragedy. Also a professor at The University of Texas in Austin, she is a familiar face in the Texas film community.

“Hellion,” which debuted at Sundance, hits SXSW wide open and left the same kind of impression Jeff Nichols’ “Mud” did the previous year. Candler taps into the reality of the situation presented here, where a husband and his two boys are completely devastated after the death of their mother/wife. Candler embeds the story on the coast of Texas in Galveston County and plays off the destruction of houses and shattered lives left in locations such as Bolivar Peninsula and Port Arthur.
