Solid lead performances, insightful "off-the-nose" writing and direction, and an original story with heft make this low-budget indie movie well worth the time. Casey Nelson and Kate Murdoch, the two leads, wrote the script, too -- and it shows. They inhabit the two characters, giving them unusual depth. What's more, they simply aren't afraid to be flawed or unlikable at moments. The supporting actors do fine work, as well. The Last Treasure Hunt is an engaging story, postmodern in both structure and style. Occasionally the music is unnecessarily "on the nose," even intrusive, but it's a small quibble, unlikely to mar the many good moments on-screen. Recommended for teens and young adults who like and admire in-depth character studies and are OK with not having their movies wrapped up in a bright and shiny bow.
