First time director Emanuele Della Valle knocks it out-of-the-park in his feature film debut, Wetlands. The film is neo-noir that delivers on character authenticity and effective storytelling. Set in the doldrums of Atlantic City, the plot revolves around Babel ‘Babs’ Johnson (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), a cop that’s attempting to get his life back together and become present in his daughter’s life. The only thing in his way he must overcome are personal demons, a local mob and an impending hurricane. Nothing to sweat there.
