"Mulligan is brilliant at showing her internal conflict, the swings between doubt and determination, and the need to be loved as a woman, as she tries to find a better place for herself and her son in an unequal world."
-Kate Muir, The Daily Mail
"In a directorial debut of immense promise, [director Paul Dano] never makes the obvious decision, instead trying to get under the skin of his characters."
-Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
"A beautifully observed study of an American family coming apart at the seams, it not only establishes Dano as a director to watch, but features an extraordinary performance by Mulligan."
Nick De Semlyen, Empire
Fourteen-year-old Joe is the only child of Jeanette and Jerry -- a housewife and a golf pro -- in a small town in 1960s Montana. Nearby, an uncontrolled forest fire rages close to the Canadian border, and when Jerry loses his job -- and his sense of purpose -- he decides to join the cause of fighting the fire, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into the role of an adult, Joe witnesses his mother’s struggle as she tries to keep her head above water.
