Film Review - The Quarry


“The Quarry” is not a film for the impatient. Co-writer/director Scott Teems (“That Evening Sun”) is in no hurry to get anywhere with this tale, which is an adaptation of the Damon Galgut novella, electing to pore over every frame detail and invest fully in the power of pregnant pauses.
