Jan. 11, 2013 - Boston.com - Tom Russo, Globe Correspondent

There are a couple of ways that the indie drama “Fairhaven” lends regional flavor to its portrait of the claustrophobia and comfort of small-town life. First, naturally, are the fishing boat shots. They’re familiar, but they handsomely help establish that this is Massachusetts we’re looking at, something that can’t necessarily be gleaned from other art-photography imagery we’re shown: a high school field, wintry neighborhoods, an abandoned roller coaster. A more prominent local touch is a character’s amusing fixation on an old Tom Brady “60 Minutes” interview, in which the already three-time Super Bowl champ reflected on his life and career and wondered, essentially, “Is this it?” Not a bad way of freshening up yet another indie-cinema search for self (and that’s true regardless of any “Go Pats!” predisposition we might have to be receptive).
