Synopsis by Mark Deming
A woman is caught in the middle of an emotional crossfire between two siblings in this independent drama. Soledad (Ronne Orenna) is an artist who is heading from California to New Mexico to show her work to a gallery owner. Soledad is traveling with the current object of her affections, Hilary (Mary Thornton), but when their car breaks down en route, Hilary suggests they pay a visit to her brother, who could be persuaded to lend them his car. It doesn't take long for Soledad to realize that Hilary and her brother, Louis (Patrick Belton), do not have a cordial relationship, and while she prefers not to get in the middle of their squabbling, by the end of the evening she learns more than she ever wanted to know about their past and the ugly secrets they share. Solitude was the first feature film from the husband-and-wife writing and directing team of Pi Ware and Susan Kraker.
