Director Paul Dano, USA, 2018, 1hr 44mins
With Carey Mulligan, Jake Gyllenhall, Ed Oxenbould
This affecting coming-of-age drama – based on the superb book by Richard Ford – is brought brilliantly to life by a career-best performance from Carey Mulligan as a complex woman whose self-determination disrupts the expectations of a 1960s nuclear family in Montana. Joe is her lonely 14-year-old son suddenly forced to take on a more adult role when his father temporarily abandons them.
A delicately paced and superbly acted chamber piece portraying fragile lives with authenticity and grace. Backed by a great score, this is independent movie making at its best, filling the screen with living, breathing individuals, filled with quiet hopes and small dreams.
