Weightless

Film

After his ex-wife goes missing, a reclusive man must raise his estranged and obese son, attracting unwelcome attention from his small-town community while disrupting his own quiet existence.

Reviews

“Jaron Albertin, directing his first feature, cultivates tension in small moments and doesn’t force the drama. These characters are so strikingly realized that you can’t help but care for them.”
– Ken Jaworowski, The New York Times Critic Pick

“Weightless marks an impressive debut feature defying convention to recount a pessimistic story about two misfits coming together too little, too late.”
– Simi Horowitz, Film Journal
