REVIEW: 'Hide Your Smiling Faces' ★★★ 1/2
American independent cinema hasn't wanted recently for sun-baked meditations on male adolescent angst in scenic rural surroundings. Still, while Jeff Nichols' "Mud" and Jordan Vogt-Roberts' "The Kings of Summer" may boast more audience appeal, Daniel Patrick Carbone's hushed but assured debut feature outdoes them both for elegance and insight.
