GOODNIGHT IRENE

Large_film_12726077_photo1
Irene is an old Seminole woman spending the day in the waiting room of an Indian health clinic. While there, she interacts with two younger men, one a construction worker in his mid-40s, the other a punk in his 20s. Through their communication, the three strangers gradually become aware of the assimilation of the American Indian, and each must face the sad and poignant truth about the disappearance of their culture.
