Storyline

Chris, a hardened auto-mechanic, hopes to inspire alt-right rhetoric in his community. He avoids conflict with his girlfriend by wasting his weeknights at the local bar (in spite of his AA meetings), where Chuck plays the village sage. Chuck lives a prematurely retired life in a little room above a bar in rural Indiana. Hospital bills loom, as does his need to borrow money from his estranged daughter living in Indianapolis. Every night he goes downstairs to drink amid oldies and newbies alike, such as Alexa, a college student. Alexa and her two friends want to get their music noticed, but struggle to find an audience for rap at their predominantly white Christian college. This cross-generational portrait of life in the cornfields examines familial dissociation, culture-clash, and the pursuit of music, back-dropped by the crackling soil of early spring-time Indiana.

Some nice acting .... but
10 April 2020 | by soldierblue68See all my reviews

I think it was a shame that the story didn't follow through more . Some nice acting and interesting scenes but ultimately we had no moments of closure or a feeling of enlightenment. The film staggered along as I waited for " something major " to happen . Again , nice atmosphere , photography and the acting was solid but we have to have more .
