Hometown Horror
25 February 2006 | by (Ames, Iowa) – See all my reviews

Katherine Lindberg's Rain was filmed primarily in my hometown of State Center, Iowa. I can assure you, the town doesn't look this bad most of the time. It's not heaven, no matter what Field of Dreams tells you, but it's not this hellish either.

That said, I had a lot of trouble caring about Rain. It's one thing for a filmmaker to make a bland, clichéd film (with cardboard dialogue & delivery) about sexual infidelities and their effects, but it's another thing to set that movie in my hometown.

Do I like seeing my old neighbor or the old grocery store in a movie? Yep, it's a lot of fun. Too bad the rest of the movie wasn't.

Oh, and most everyone that still lives in town is over 60, or my family. If the town's really like this, and they're all playing musical beds, then I'm quite glad to be out of there.
