Directed by Elfar Adalsteins, feature End of Sentence is a drama starring Oscar nominee, John Hawkes (Winter’s Bone, Contagion) and Logan Lerman (Perks of Being a Wallflower, Fury). Shot by cinematographer Karl Oskarsson IKS, the feature is based on a trying relationship between a father and son as they travel from Alabama to Ireland to spread their wife & mother’s ashes in her hometown.
End of Sentence received its World Premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and has been described by The Hollywood Reporter as an “emotionally raw road movie” with the “ample potential for turning festival buzz into box office returns”. The Hollywood Reporter also gave it a very positive review: “End of Sentence is a familiar story at heart, but beautifully observed, sensitively played and smart enough to wrong-foot audience expectations whenever the plot gets too comfortable.”
The Hollywood Reporter admires the beauty in Director of Photography Karl Oskarsson IKS’ work, stating: “Adalsteins maintains an impressively steady hand for a first-time director, while he and cinematographer Karl Oskarsson shoot the lush Irish countryside with majestic aerial shots that manage to look ravishing without resorting to twinkle-eyed Emerald Isle cliché.” While Variety said: “the rolling, tousled Emerald Isle scenery flashing by the car window shot lucidly but not over-prettily by Karl Oskarsson, doesn’t hurt either.”
