4/4 Stars! “a sure bet for Oscar love, and deservedly so…is a beautifully constructed, unforgiving, heart-tugging family epic” (Chicago Sun-Times)

“an emotionally powerful and deeply moving film that features some of the very best performances that I have seen all year…Every single actor involved in this project brought their A-game…a simple and universal story with terrific performances.” (We Live Entertainment)

“The cast could not be better…It’s a tough role and Adams brilliantly brings it home, managing some barn-burning scenes but never going over the top. Close is just magnificent here, physically and emotionally ripping into Mamaw and delivering another unforgettable character in a career that has been full of them.” (Deadline)

An urgent phone call pulls a Yale Law student back to his Ohio hometown, where he reflects on three generations of family history and his own future.
