About the Movie
When a teenage boy goes missing in a small town already devastated by a fatal mining accident, three strangers find themselves drawn together in a tangle of secrets, lies, and the collective grief of the community. Reeling from the disappearance of her son, Diane (Elizabeth Banks) finds herself drifting away from her husband (Josh Lucas), a mining company executive whose role in the accident has made her family the prime target for the town’s anger. When she forms a dangerous bond with the sole survivor of the disaster (Boyd Holbrook), truths will be uncovered that threaten to tear apart the few remaining threads holding the town together in this intense drama from writer-director Sara Colangelo.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Owen tries with lurching uncertainty to ease back into normal, even as the writer and director Sara Colangelo clutters his path with enough obstacles to challenge the most heroically determined traveler.
Rotten: A sensitive and well-meaning but rather ordinary melodrama that wouldn't have seemed out of place as a network movie-of-the-week circa 1985.
Fresh: A small-town tragedy leads to moral crises on all sides in Sara Colangelo's Little Accidents, a sober drama that makes class central to the story without ever sounding like it has an agenda.
Fresh: There's a quiet desperation to all the lives depicted in writer-director Sara Colangelo's assured indie about a West Virginia mining accident that upends everyone in town.
I Love Elizabeth Banks
Elizabeth Banks can do no wrong. I loved her authentic and genuine performance in this film. She’s one of the best actresses working in Hollywood today.
BOYD HOLBROOK SHINES!
Crazy good acting in this beautiful small town indie. "Coal was, at one point, 82 percent of America's energy and, in the last five years, I think it's down to 62" - (Boyd on paying homage to his coal mining hometown.) Love meaningful films like this one!
The cast delivers stellar performances!
A powerful film, very well directed, and immense gravitas.
