Part of the Special Events Strand


When Walter is released from prison after a 12-year sentence, he struggles to readjust to life outside. A hostile parole officer (Mos Def), a brother-in-law (Benjamin Bratt) brimming with distaste and his therapist (Michael Shannon) are his only confidantes until he meets fearless, plain-talking Vicki. As romance unexpectedly develops, he confesses to a past he is ashamed of, and desires he knows are wrong.

This screening has been specially curated by Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, who will participate in a post-screening Q&A.
