A Love Song, a Southwest Colorado set tale about a widow (Dale Dickey) who is waiting for a childhood friend (Wes Studi) at a campsite, marks Max Walker-Silverman’s feature film debut. It’s a quiet film with a surprising level of emotional power, and I hope both Dickey and Studi receive awards consideration this season. My video interview with Dickey and Studi is below.
Taking a chance on director Max Walker-Silverman was not a big leap for Dale Dickey. “I watched his two short films and I could tell from talking to him on Zoom and reading his script and watching his work that he had a really special gift,” said Dickey, whose credits include Winter’s Bone and Hell or High Water. “And it was an opportunity that I had not been given before. So I jumped at it.”
