Hamilton chronicles two summer days in the life of a young family: Lena, 17, and Joe, 20, two recent, accidental, unwed parents residing in a diverse suburban neighborhood in northeast Baltimore City. First-timer Matthew Porterfield avoids the narrative contrivances of many recent forays into Americana - by virtually avoiding narrative. Plotless in the best sense, Hamilton is essentially a couple of uneventful days in the lives of young parents Joe and Lena and their extended family. Utilizing lots of long takes, minimal camera movement, and most importantly, Scott Martin's ambient sound design, Hamilton immerses itself in the summertime rhythms of one particular blue-collar Baltimore suburb.
