Plot Summary

Directed by Academy Award nominee Steph Green and featuring Saturday Night Live star Will Forte, this life-affirming film embraces the healing power of love and family in all of its idiosyncratic forms. After a stroke leaves her husband mentally disabled and fundamentally changed, spirited Irish housewife Vanetia struggles to keep her family together in the wake of tragedy. A research grant from American doctor Ted Fielding (Forte), interested in documenting the family's recovery process, allows them to get by. Though Vanetia initially resents living under Ted's microscope, she soon finds comfort in his calming presence, while Ted responds to Vanetia's dynamic, unpredictable personality. As the two explore their bond within their unique situation, a new family begins to emerge. Run & Jump is an unexpected, unconventional romance, intimate family portrait and emotional journey of recovery that ultimately uplifts through its heartfelt message of human connection and the power of acceptance.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Run & Jump" is as real and messy as life itself. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jan 23, 2014

Fresh: Steph Green's debut feature captures the beauty of an obviously flawed family with remarkable warmth and immediacy. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Jan 14, 2014

Fresh: Though Forte might be the draw, veteran British actress Maxine Peake is the showstopper of Green's family drama set in Ireland. Peake is charisma incarnate as Vanetia ... – Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times, Jan 23, 2014

Fresh: Keogan and Green's resolution, which underplays melodrama and avoids sentimentality, is unusually (and, given the characters' natures, appropriately) restrained. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Jan 14, 2014
