A fleeting conversation between two people forced to spend much more time at home gives rise to a tender friendship in which both find what they lacked.

Juliette good but uneven indie
Kelly (Juliette Lewis) is a former musician turned suburban mom. She hasn’t had sex with husband Josh (Josh Hopkins) for 6 months since the birth of their baby. She is uncertain about her new life and struggling as a new mom. She befriends wheelchair-bound flirtatious neighborhood teen Cal McCullen (Jonny Weston). She’s hounded by her in-laws Bev (Cybill Shepherd) and Julie (Lucy Owen).
There are some funny moments like her friends with pictures of a dog. There are poignant moments. There are tough moments. There are awkward moments. It all adds up to an uneven movie. Juliette Lewis is terrific transitioning between the emotional turmoils. I wish this was something simply with Kelly & Cal starting a band. The filmmaker seems intent on going for a higher degree of difficulty and don’t quite make it.
KELLY & CAL is the kind of movie that stays with you long after you’ve seen it
KELLY & CAL is the kind of movie that stays with you long after you’ve seen it. Perfect casting of Juliette Lewis who’s real-life rock ‘n roll youth only strengthens the very raw, honest, and real identity crisis that comes with first-time motherhood. Unfortunately, I have lived this moment in life myself and Juliette plays it with the same “what-the-hell-just-happened” look on her face that I must have had. But Jonny Weston’s performance of Cal stole the movie for me. I felt as shocked and moved by his character as Juliette Lewis’s Kelly. He was charismatic and heartbreaking. This movie is so smartly written by Amy Lowe Starbin. The characters so true to their place in life. For example, Cal’s cynicism might seem older than his years at times, but his youthful judgment and actions remind us he is still a teenager. The movie as a whole is a near perfect synergy of writing, directing, acting, cinematography, editing, and sound design. The side characters have depth and range that defies their limited time on screen. And while it’s been a festival favorite, it is not the type of indie movie that leaves you feeling uncomfortable or weirded out, or mentally exhausted. It’s the type of movie I dream of, one that reflects real life and leaves me with a bit of hope.
