Dir. Paul Dano. USA, 2018. 1h 45m. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Carey Mulligan, Ed Oxenbould, Bill Camp, Zoe Margaret Colletti, Cate Jones.

In 1960s Montana, a wife and her young son are left to fend for themselves after jobless and directionless husband Jerry leaves to fight a forest fire on the Canadian border. Paul Dano’s directorial debut is a slow-burning coming-of-age drama which sumptuously evokes small-town woes.

‘This handsomely made, meticulously acted period picture is an impressive directorial debut for – and a triumph for its production designer Akin McKenzie and cinematographer Diego Garcia.’ ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘A delicate labour of love, the film is softly focused on the details that make up the relationships with the people closest to us; the ones that keep us together, those that break us apart.’ Elle Kemp, Sight and Sound Magazine
