Every family has its ghosts. The Mosher family has more than most. Shot over a year from one Halloween to the next, October Country is a portrait of an American family struggling for stability while haunted by the ghosts of war, teen pregnancy, foster care and child abuse.

Our take

Cycles can be difficult to break when opportunity is limited. For lack of a way out, bad patterns end up being passed from one generation to another. As a family tries with admirable good humor to shake its specters and turn new leaves, one son attends to these efforts in intimate documentary form.
