Lana's Rain | Chicago Reader

Lana's Rain

Columbia College grads Michael Ojeda and Joel Goodman make their feature debut with this harsh but moving drama. The title character, a young Balkan beauty (Oksana Orlenko), immigrates to America with her brother, a ruthless gangster named Darko (Nickolai Stoilov). Upon arriving in Chicago they lose their $20,000 savings, and Darko puts his sister on the street turning tricks. There's a creaky romantic subplot involving Lana and a sweet Chinese sculptor (Louyong Wang), but otherwise Ojeda's script sticks to the bleak world of eastern European refugees in Chicago. A story of violent men told from a woman's perspective, the movie hinges on Orlenko, a Ukrainian model-actress making her American feature debut, and she delivers a sterling performance. In English and subtitled Croatian. R, 107 min.
