Dir: Paul Dano
Starring: Carey Mulligan, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ed Oxenbould
Paul Dano’s stunning directional debut depicts the domestic struggles of a nuclear family in 1960s Montana. When husband and father Jerry (Gyllenhaal) loses his job, he decides to fight a threatening forest fire on the Canadian border, leaving his wife Jeanette (Mulligan) and son Joe (Oxenbould) to provide for themselves. Fourteen-year-old Joe is left to witness his mother’s emotional turmoil, finding he has no choice but to play the role of adult. Dano’s elegant shots, along with stellar performances from Mulligan and Gyllenhaal bring these beautifully complicated characters to life.
