The bonds of family are weathered by the winds of change in this independent drama from writer and director Chris Eska. Jamie (Pedro Castaneda) is an illegal immigrant living in Texas, where he earns a living doing odd jobs and farm work; in his early sixties, Jamie is no longer a young man, but he works hard and takes his responsibilities seriously. Jamie shares his home with his daughter-in-law, Lupe (Veronica Loren), who has been on her own since the untimely death of her husband. Jamie feels a paternal love for Lupe, and tries to look out for her however he can, while she looks up to the strong but gentle old man. Life is slowly changing for both of them, though; Jamie isn't getting the same kind of work he once did, and his health is beginning to fail him, while Lupe is gradually finding new love, which deeply concerns her protective father-in-law. August Evening received a special "sneak preview" screening as a work in progress at the 2007 South by Southwest Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Some New Trailer For August Evening
New Review For Movie August EveningLoren has an ethereal presence that is, at the same time, indomitable.
Peter Rainer-Christian Science Monitor
Eska's tale of a woman's unconditional support of her father-in-law is told with a faux-poetic sensibility that never really connects with his characters' lives.
A poignant film filled with ample rewards for those who submit to its leisurely pace and gentle observations.
Gary Goldstein-Los Angeles Times
Eska, who wrote and edited his film, appears to be at the beginning of a good career.
Stanley Kauffmann-The New Republic
Pedro Castaneda, a nonprofessional appearing in his first film, and Veronica Loren tug at your heartstrings with their portrayals of the lead characters.
V.A. Musetto-New York Post
Castaneda [star]...gives a towering, Robert Duvall-style performance as a granitic man in late middle age whose internal world of pain and love and knowledge occasionally flickers to the surface.
Jaime and Lupe are vividly realized, sympathetic characters.
This quiet, contemplative gem of a film paints a painfully accurate portrait of familial love, loss, and healing-by-degrees among the migrant communities bordering San Antonio.
Marc Savlov-Austin Chronicle
(Pedro) Castaneda, the male lead in Chris Eska's mesmerizing debut feature August Evening, has the kind of natural, hypnotic screen presence that cannot be taught.
Larry Ratliff-San Antonio Express-News
August Evening creates a complete world, with all of its practical limitations and emotional possibilities, for Jaime and Lupe to hunt for their place in.
Bob Strauss-Los Angeles Daily News
A mature move for a debuting filmmaker.
Tim Cogshell-Boxoffice Magazine
A shooting star of a movie with awesome beauty in its characters, in the natural world, and in the cycles of creation and destruction depicted in the emotionally affecting drama.
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat-Spirituality and Practice
Rich in atmosphere and family values.
Harvey S. Karten-Compuserve
Although its plot has its share of melodramatic twists and tearful revelations, August Evening focuses on the moments between, the mundane interactions that make up a life.
Sam Adams-AV Club
[Director] Eska manages to superimpose downtrodden personalities on an authentic setting, making it a compelling exercise in atmospheric storytelling.
