Plot Summary

An annual 4th of July weekend hosted by troubled couple Wendy (Amy Smart) and Ellis (Josh Leonard) is seen through the eyes of Joey (Johnny Sequoia), Wendy's ten year old daughter.  Ellis is a trust fund baby, who is devoted to Wendy and Joey, but oblivious to the fact that his wife feels disconnected from him; Wendy, a former college radical, feigns a happiness she has secretly lost.
 
Among the couple's invited guests are: Saul, former husband of Wendy, a successful writer whom we come to discover has never written a thing in his life; Will, Saul's alcoholic ghost writer who is suffering from writer’s block; Emma, Saul’s wife, who is having an affair with Will. And Hal, the rootless hippie life coach and Wendy’s best friend.
 
Into this combustible mix walks Chad, a nature photographer who forces the old friends into uncomfortable situations that reveal long buried secrets and cause the group to re-examine their relationships over the course of the weekend.

    At a time when it seems so many of the best film directors are moving over to television because the feature filmmaking process can’t accommodate their artistic ambitions, this pompous, know-something-ish, navel-gazing, indulgent, pissy, priggish, albeit reasonably well-photographed, pile of sick got financed to completion. Because Among Ravens is, finally, a thoroughly noxious concoction. show more

    The Dissolve

    The film compares the behavior of ravens and humans—their similar tendencies to be protective, flock, and mate with others—with an expectation that profundity and insight will come. When it doesn’t, the film’s emotions feel calculated, not earned. show more
