BOLT FROM THE BLUE (2023) Austin Film Festival

Reporter goes to Alaska to see the work of a scientist who says that they can contain lightning and turn it into an energy source.

This is a small scale gem. This is a good film with good people that entertains us from start to finish.

To be honest I don’t have a great deal to say about BOLT FROM THE BLUE other than it entertained me. Beautifully made and expertly acted the film takes a well worn tale and shines it up just enough that we don’t mind hearing it again.  That’s not a knock, it’s just the truth, this is another version of the outside comes in on the verge of a creator’s great discovery and watches it happens. Hell it even has the trope of the work was started by the scientists late parents.

Yea you’ll be way ahead of everyone on screen, but you really won’t care because the cast is so good.

To be honest I had no desire to see the film but in a moment of weakness I said what the heck and took it on. I’m glad I did because I got to see a nicely entertaining film that was the perfect palette cleanse for the heavy festival films I’ve been watching.
