A sheriff sees his state senate bid slide out onto the ice when his daughter begins to date the son of a charming but psychologically disturbed woman with whom the sheriff has engaged in a two-decade-long affair.
Dustin Lance Black
I went to this film thinking I was going to see a movie about brothers
trying to play baseball in the majors, but the film is much deeper than
that and blew me away. Although there is a baseball theme in the film,
the film is more focused on the brothers returning to their home town
and dealing with their father, who is a homeless alcoholic. The
adversity that these brothers faced while growing up is truly inspiring
because they are so upbeat and determined to reach their goals. I'm
truly grateful that I was able to attend their screening, see them in
person, and to observe that they are happy people because I am still
shocked by how much they have overcome. If more people had the same
determined outlook that these brothers have at reaching their American
Dream, our country would be a lot more successful. I would also
recommend reading their book "Your Either In or In the Way" because it
divulges even deeper into their lives, and describes all of the
obstacles they had to face to create this film, the biggest ones being
that they had no experience in the film industry as directors, writers,
or actors, zero industry connections, and no money. I plan on seeing
this film again when in comes out at the end of April, and I definitely
will be bringing some tissues for the waterworks.
