Don’t Waste Your Time
This is a film as beautiful as it is heartbreaking. For something so stark and simple, each frame speaks an ocean of words into existence, guided by Debra Ganik (Winter’s Bone) and commanded by two absolutely incredible performances from Ben Foster and Thomasin McKenzie. The father/daughter chemistry is nothing short of real, and you can’t help but feel for each character, even as a silent divide begins to separate them from each other. The themes of being your own person despite the judgments of society, parental guidance turning into borderline abuse and knowing when to let go are front and center, occasionally cutting as deep as the focus on some of the breathtaking wilderness shots framed by Michel McDonough. As much as I want to say more, it feels like the opposite of the point for a film of this nature. Now I want to go sit outside and watch the sunset…but I’m not sleeping out there.
