Transposition of the Great Vessels

Contemplating the American dream, Lee Lynch's 2005 debut feature follows a young husband and wife from Redding, California, to Los Angeles as they try to make a better life for themselves. Lynch based the movie on his parents' struggles, and despite a clear reverence for the past, he rigorously avoids cheap nostalgia, using spare dialogue as he charts the couple's small victories and setbacks. A sea change occurs when their first child is born with the title heart defect; underplaying the drama, Lynch maintains a respectful emotional distance as they keep vigil during the surgery to save the baby's life. 72 min.
