Alo (2011)

Type :   Production countries :  

  Summary  

It is Alo's birthday, not that his domineering mother or henpecked father actually care. Rather than allowing him to visit his friends in town, they force him to stay and work on the farm. Whilst working with his father, Alo attempts to push a large rock away, which his father tells him cannot be done, prompting Alo's further attempts. After Alo runs off while he is meant to be working, his parents reveal that they intend to withdraw him from Roundview College in order to force him to buckle down on the farm. Later Alo is given a list of tasks, and instead hides in Bessy the cow's stable. He accidentally drops his burning spliff onto a tank of propane, blowing up part of the stable and Bessy. His mother and father take everything he owns as punishment, including his van and beloved dog Rags, to be sold. Burning with rage and finally reaching his limit, he invites the gang over to the farm for an impromptu party, which he hopes will trash the farmhouse. While at the party, Liv questions Franky of her sexuality to which she does not reply. When Alo's parents return to find the teenagers fleeing the scene , Alo drunkenly confronts his aghast family and berates his father for allowing his mother to henpeck him all the time, calling him "gormless and old." To his and his mother's horror, his father collapses and his mother immediately orders him to call an ambulance. Alo goes to Nick's house, where he is continuing the party from earlier, as his father is gone for the week. Franky, wanders upstairs to discover Liv and Matty having sex in his bedroom. She leaves with tears in her eyes, and Matty sees this, though he doesn't mention it to Liv. Alo goes to Rich's house, where Rich confesses that he has had sex with Grace. Rich is exuberant about growing up, which prompts Alo to leave without telling him what is wrong. Alo goes to the hospital, where he sees the farmhand and his dog, Rags. The farmhand tells him that his father is fine, but he had known about getting worse; he hadn't told Alo because he didn't want him to worry. Alo returns home and pledges to his mother that he will try harder and "grow up," but demands that she makes an effort too, as she is too domineering. This encounter moves her to tears. On the farm, Alo ties a rope around the stubborn rock and hooks it to the tractor, where he tries to pull it out of the ground, and is successful with the help of his father.
