Joe Swanberg United States, 2015

Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Digging for Fire

Strong symbolism in an ordinary story that just lulls along without interest. While the themes of coming to terms with your past as well as maintaining identity in marriage and parenthood are well developed, it doesn't push many emotional buttons due to its dull and obvious typicality. It may have much to say about personal growth, but Digging for Fire offers little surprise or divergence from similar films.
