Storyline

A maximum-security prison inmate named Louis, who, 24 years after committing a violent crime as a young man, finds himself on the cusp of release from prison, facing an uncertain future on the outside. He encounters Beech, a newly incarcerated young man who offers him much needed-friendship, though it's not without unfortunate complications. The younger inmate echoes of his older counterpart, stirring instincts within Louis that had long been buried beneath a tough exterior. Written by Tribeca Film Festival

Great acting and sense of reality. But story?
24 February 2019 | by isaactheSee all my reviews

No spoilers because... what would I spoil? Basically just followed around a dude his last 40 days in Prison. It was very much real life. But we could be watching any characters last 40 days, why this guy? The why isn't super clear. Still a good film. Because of the nature of this portraying reality, reality offers much beneath the surface that different people connect with and see. Therefore I believe every 10 star review is justified. I personally watched the credits roll with a resounding, "well. Ok." in my head.
