When Jerry Brinson loses his job and his sense of purpose, he decides to join a rescue team fighting nearby wildfires – leaving behind his wife Jeannette and his teenage son Joe. Alone for the first time, Jeannette explore her new sense of independence, and whilst trying to keep things afloat, starts questioning her family life and choices. Paul Dano’s directorial debut, co-written with Zoe Kazan, is a touching portrait of a young boy witnessing the breakdown of his parents’ marriage in 1960s Montana.
“This handsomely made, meticulously acted period picture is an impressive directorial debut for Paul Dano… [who] has given us a satisfying drama of damaged lives.” - The Guardian
