Higher Ground

(R) ★★★☆☆

Vera Farmiga directs and stars in this independent film about a woman who confronts the limitations of her life and then redefines it completely. The film doesn’t state things directly, but we sense what is happening to her character, Corinne, and how some turn to fundamentalism for complex and interconnected reasons. Corinne’s on a mission, but its particulars elude her, which makes her path an unpredictable and rewarding one.

Rising Rapper

Timing has been everything for Sean Rose. Timing, coupled with hustle and passion, has made the 22-year-old one of the fastest-rising MCs in Las Vegas. However, on one August afternoon, timing wasn’t on Rose’s side. Sitting on a bench outside sneaker haven UNDFTD, I wait an hour for Rose to show up. What makes Rose think he can be fashionably late for this interview? Maybe it’s the 5 a.m. phone call from R. Kelly who stumbled across his music earlier this year. Or perhaps the e-mail from Kanye West who heard his Rose to the Occasion project through a friend?
