The Hero (2017)

Director: Brett Haley. Cast: Sam Elliott, Laura Prepon, Nick Offerman, Krysten Ritter, Katharine Ross, Ali Wong, Carmen Esposito, Max Gail, Christopher May, Jackie Joyner, Patrika Darbo. Screenplay: Brett Haley and Marc Basch.

Twitter Capsule: A step down from I'll See You in My Dreams. Takes more storytelling risks but bungles many of them. Ending feels muddled.

VOR:   Stabs at taking chances (metafilm, dream sequences, elliptical edits) feel forced and awkward. So does most of the rest, for no good reason.
