First screened in November 2018
Director: Paul Dano. Cast: Ed Oxenbould, Carey Mulligan, Jake Gyllenhaal, Bill Camp, Zoe Margaret Colletti, John Walpole. Screenplay: Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan (based on the novel by Richard Ford).
I veered dramatically on this, ending up mostly impressed, save for the two star turns. Oxenbould, images, tone all great.
Manages to explore small-town anomie through means and registers we don't always see. Its best scenes achieve unusual fusion with a teenage child's vantage.
