Melodramatic - but sincere - fusional relationship between a dad and a daughter. Appearance of Beau BRIDGES in an interesting counterpoint of Jack's (dying) philosophy. Great performance of D-D LEWIS, Camilla BELLE & Ryan MCDONALD. === Mélo sincère autour de la relation fusionnelle entre un père et sa fille. Apparition de Beau BRIDGES dans un contrepoint intéressant de la philosophie de Jack en train de disparaître.
All children are damaged from parenting - or should that just be "developed"? Here we get the unfamiliar perspective of a well-intentioned recluse whose actions have desirous ambiguities. It's a great cast (McDonald charmed me most), but sorely underwritten. Few insights are shared, and it's too stagey for naturalism. On the inconsequential side of Sundance-territory. 'Captain Fantastic' is a more pointed portrait.
