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.

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
