The Lesser Blessed movie scene

Joel Nathan Evans takes it day by day in The Lesser Blessed.

The 2012 independent film drama The Lesser Blessed examines what it’s like to be a vulnerable teenager in today’s modern world.

Larry (Joel Nathan Evans) is a teenager living in a small, remote community in Canada whose life is full of too many parties, too much drinking, and not enough responsibility or independence. Seeking to belong without belonging, Larry and his friend try to absorb life’s lessons when it comes to love, racial tensions and the overall recklessness of youth. Larry tries to do this while his world remains clouded by a dark mystery from his past.

Written and directed by Anita Doron from the novel by Richard Van Camp, the R-rated film stars Chloe Rose, Kiowa Gordon and Benjamin Bratt (La Mission).

The Lesser Blessed premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, 2012.

The DVD of the film includes cast and crew interviews and a descriptive video track as bonus features.
