Young filmmakers, just out of college, want to interview Sam, the girlfriend of Reed, the dead lead singer of the band The Big Carnival. It was the band, that was quite famous, but got really popular and got a cult following after Reed's death, primarily due to the strangeness always surrounding him.
She agrees to do the interview on one condition, they have to do it her way.
She tells the story of when they were little. Sam and her brother grew up next to and with Reed. How they played together, how they grew up together, how they fall in love, along with something sinister that always seems to follow Reed until it took him in end.
The ending is perfect for the vibe of the story. Sam leave the guys with multiple possible explanations of the events, in order for the viewer to make their own opinion based on the whole story.
I just wish there was one little hint for what really happened, I keep thinking about it since I finished reading it and it's driving me crazy (that's probably the point, but still :) ).
The story is written very well, it is the narration of the interview between the filmmakers and Sam. As I read it, the story came alive before my eyes, it's vivid and gripping and you can't put it down until the end. The life portrayed is full of struggles and pain and the characters talked about are all flawed, but you can't help but root for them simultaneously.
Highly recommend it!
