SJCT Summer Film Series

This is a first for our series – “Limbo”, a film made almost two decades ago. It is not a “classic” in the normal sense, rather, one that was underappreciated upon release. Written and directed by John Sayles (“The Secret of Roan Inish”), Limbo tells the story of people trying to reinvent themselves in the Southwestern islands of Alaska.

The story revolves around Joe Gastineau, a fisherman traumatized by an accident at sea years before, a singer Donna de Angelo and her disaffected daughter Noelle. When Joe’s fast-talking half-brother Bobby returns to town and asks Joe for a favor, their lives are changed forever.

This is an adventure story, filled with suspense and ending with a question mark.

Excellent performances by entire cast (including a cameo appearance by Kris Kristofferson).
