Storyline

Every day our changing climate pushes us closer to an environmental catastrophe, but for most the problem is easy to ignore. David Hallquist, a Vermont utility executive, has made it his mission to take on one of the largest contributors of this global crisis-our electric grid. But when his son Derek tries to tell his father's story, the film is soon derailed by a staggering family secret, one that forces Derek and David to turn their attention toward a much more personal struggle, one that can no longer be ignored. Written by Aaron Woolf

Smart and emotional all at once
29 March 2018 | by katiek-8See all my reviews

There's no way that plot summary does justice to how entertaining, nuanced, and emotional this film is. It ends up being a complex character study -- more like a Hollywood drama than a documentary, right down to the plot twists. Except that it's real. And it's an approach to a character that Hollywood rarely nails, because this dad defies all cliches, even in his "denial." He's painfully, wonderfully human. It should be on one of those "sleeper" movie lists, because I think it came out a while ago and I only just heard about it, and yet I loved it.
