The Man from Earth (2007)
A drama directed by Richard Schenkman.
A man calls his friends together to say goodbye to them before he moves away. When they show up at his cottage, he claims that he is 14,000 years old and they question him on this.
The whole film takes place at a small cottage in a maximum of 3 rooms, plus directly outside the door. There were no special effects and dialogue was the main action. Despite these facts, the characters were under-developed and the plot was minimal. The ideas about religion and theology that the characters talked about were as true as can be related, given that the main character is not actually Jesus. I'm rating it o.k. because it was alright, but could have been much better.
