Told from the inside out with haunting revelations along the way, we first meet Harlon as a vulnerable three-year old, back to camera, as he endures the abuse of his cruel, homophobic and overbearing father. Growing up in gun country and forced to shoot a white rabbit, Harlon’s world is soon infiltrated by voices and images that take on increasing ferocity as he becomes the target of schoolyard bullies. His only friends are Julie, an emotionally unstable newcomer, and his best friend Stevie, a vulnerable, undersized side kick.
White Rabbit is a voyage into the heart of madness so skillfully drawn we can’t help feeling compassion. Flawless performances coupled with first-rate cinematography in the service of an all too timely subject make this a psychological study you won’t want to miss. This is masterful filmmaking. –Barbara Pokras, ACE
