"Iowa" is a cautionary tale of love, crime, fantasy and addiction. Two young lovers, Esper Harte (Matt Farnsworth) and Donna Huffman (Diane Foster) decide to go into the "batch" business—cooking their own methamphetamine—only to watch it burn a jagged hole in their lives. An unflinching look at the crystal meth epidemic that is currently raging in the Midwest and its devastating effect on the lives of users and the people around them, "Iowa" is notable for its restraint and compassion, and merits comparison with "Requiem for a Dream."
