I watched American son the other day. The setting is a police station. Actually it could be anywhere but we think it is at a police station. The people involved are two cops: Larkin and Stokes who has been coming to work for forever! Kendra and Scott(Jamal’s parents).
Jamal has been missing from home for a few hours and Kendra fearing for the worse is at the police station to report. She is angry. She almost doesn’t allow Larkin to finish a sentence. Larkin seems to know more than he is letting on. Scott arrives on the scene and is briefed by Larkin mistaking him for Stokes.
Scott and Kendra use this tense moment to discuss their failing marriage. For a moment there I thought they would make up but as the movie ends, their marriage ends with the final curtain.
If you have watched the exam or the Sunset Limited, then the lack of set variation will not be a problem for you because then you pay attention to the action.
