Aaron Paul, Juliette Lewis, Josh Wiggins, Deke Garner / Fiction / English
An insightful family drama with genuine heart and soul.
A family is brought to the brink of separation when single father Hollis (Aaron Paul) loses control of his increasingly delinquent son Jacob. Struggling to cope with the untimely loss of his wife and unwilling to face the fact that his family could fall apart forever, Hollis is forced to face reality when Jacob's unruly behaviour attracts the attention of social services. Blessed by a gripping, nuanced narrative and excellent performances throughout, this deeply affecting family drama is a memorable depiction of a family overcoming adversity. [12A]
