Actor Paul Dano’s directorial debut is a sober, beautifully realised post-war American family drama, adapted from the novel by Richard Ford. 1960s Montana: 14-year-old Joe (Ed Oxenbould) is the only child of Jeanette (Carey Mulligan) and Jerry Brinston (Jake Gyllenhaal). When Jerry loses his job , he decides to go and help fight a forest fire raging close to the Canadian border, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into a more adult role, Joe witnesses his mother struggle to keep her head above water; then her subsequent courage in considering new directions.
