In a small American town still living in the shadow of a terrible coal mine accident, the disappearance of a teenage boy draws together a surviving miner, the lonely wife of a mine executive, and a local boy in a web of secrets.
I hate leaving bad reviews, because I feel like you can take a little something from every movie. So I will just honestly describe this movie as "a slow movie." It's the type of movie that you would watch while lazing around at home on a Sunday afternoon, or the type of movie that you would play in the background of a get-together for white noise.
I'm sure it will win plenty of awards because it does have some substance and it requires some thought in order to receive the message conveyed. But in a nut-shell, a free-spirited man-child lives without regrets or constraints. His polar-opposite brother seeks guidance and happiness all while babysitting an adult male. I recommend giving it a chance on a sick-day from work.
