Sword of Trust (2019)

Cynthia and Mary show up to collect Cynthia’s inheritance from her deceased grandfather, but the only item she receives is an antique sword that was believed by her grandfather to be proof that the South won the Civil War. (IMDb)

The first act set-up of the quirky plot and authentic characters is great (minus the TV sitcom-esque in-between-scenes guitar riffs), wonderfully acted and laced with subtle humour and dramatic intrigue that are followed up on to absolute perfection in that thing of dramatic/comedic beauty that is the truck convo (Maron’s monologue is a particular highlight). After all that great script work though the ending feels a little too insubstantial, and comes a good half hour too early too to boot.

7.5/10 (Really Good)
