A multigenerational tale tracking one family’s rise and fall over decades, as seen through the eyes of its youngest member, Jesse, an only child who develops an interest in art.

Our take

A family and a country come undone in Ricky D’Ambrose’s intricate, Spirit award-nominated drama. Deploying a Bressonian framing of richly textured interiors and delicate hand gestures, these nostalgic glimpses at a fractured father-son bond meticulously conjure a bygone ’80s and ’90s Long Island.
