About the Movie

Sean, a retired literature professor and civic activist, writes a letter to his estranged son, Tennessee, a ranch hand. Tennessee is uncertain how to respond, but knowing he should see his aging father, he decides to go home. Tennessee arrives just as Nina, Seanʼs personal trainer fresh off a bad breakup, accepts Seanʼs offer to move in and help him write his memoirs. The tension between father and son is ever-present. As Sean and Nina work, Tennessee avoids his overbearing father with fix-up projects around the house. One evening after Nina has gone out, Sean and Tennessee find themselves alone in the house for the first time.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The film means well but feels generic, strained and claustrophobic (despite several scenes at a deserted beach), with tight close-ups and sudden confrontations. – Anita Gates, New York Times, Sep 11, 2014

Fresh: An intimate family drama that subtly and delightfully subverts expectations of what kind of a tale it is and where it's headed. – Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times, Sep 18, 2014

Rotten: There's clearly a troubled history here, but co-writer/director Matt Rabinowitz doesn't artfully withhold information so much as lay it all on the table a bit earlier than he might have. – Michael Nordine, Village Voice, Sep 10, 2014
