You know, occasionally I come across film titles I haven't seen but suspect a well-informed S&A reader has and that's the case with the post-Hurricane Katrina, road trip flick A Thing As Big As The Ocean.

Directed by Joseph Cashiola, the low-budget feature stars Jeff Harms and Thai Tyler trekking across the Southwestern desert. Here's a brief description from City Paper:

"Following two hurricane survivors fleeing New Orleans, A Thing as Big as the Ocean spends three days with Lemmy (Jeff Harms), a thirtysomething alcoholic trying to escape a destructive past, and Darlene (Thai Tyler), a twentysomething African-American discouraged but hopeful about a new life. After meeting on an evacuation bus, they spend three days on the road together before splitting ways to tackle separate futures and different challenges."

The production was filmed over six weeks back in 2007 and, in 2008, won the coveted Independent Filmmaker Lab Finishing Grant, a $50,000 cash prize, courtesy of IFP.

The film has made its rounds on the film festival circuit...most recently, in March, at the Frederick Film Festival.  So did anyone see it?
