The Reception

The Reception Information

The Reception is 2005 feature film by American director John G. Young who wrote and directed the movie.


It is a drama set in wintry upstate New York. Hoping to cash in on an inheritance, Sierra (Margaret Burkwit) and her husband Andrew (Darien Sills-Evans) arrive at her mother's Jeannette's home only to discover resentful Jeannette (played by Pamela Holden Stewart) and her companion, the African-American artist Martin (Wayne Lamont Sims). Because the gay Martin is unable to satisfy her sexually, Jeannette takes to embarrassing him whenever she's drunk, yet Martin takes the abuse in strides.

Jeannette's daughter Sierra arrives as grandmother's fortune is hers to have once she is married. The newly-weds plan to stay just long enough to run away with the money. But, Jeannette throws a spanner in the works when she announces an impromptu wedding reception.

John G. Young really taps into the story's numerously painful racial and sexual hot zones. Characters sometimes ask each other questions they should already know the answers to.
