This film is a slow, but worthwhile burn. It takes its time to tell a story. This is a character oriented movie at its core. The performances by Amy Ryan and Terry Kinney are nuanced and raw. The movie has a tongue twister for a title, but the plot is focused. A brother and sister are brought together to bury their father on his favorite land, but they discover three brothers returning to that very land, 50 years after their family owned it. Sounds a bit confusing writing the synopsis, but the story speaks for itself. If you’re looking for a profoundly acted film with a personal narrative, this is a movie to see.
