Under McGowan's restrained direction, "Rust Creek" is an impressive example of good storytelling overriding budget and star power.

Director Jen McGowan and screenwriter Julie Lipson take too leisurely of an approach to a story that should be more taut, but the attention they pay to characters and setting makes a difference in how the movie plays out.

Although there are times when the story meanders, two aspects remain strong throughout: the committed performance by lead actress Hermione Corfield and the vivid images captured by the lens of cinematographer Michelle Lawler.

It's tight without being punishing, and its humor takes you happily by surprise.

Corfield is fine in a role that gives her little opportunity to do more than run and fight, but a woman this empowered removes the question mark from her survival - and the tension from the movie.
