Storyline

About a convict -Russ Millings - who has just been released from prison after serving 20 years for possessing an ounce of marijuana. The world outside, changed beyond his recognition, seems like seen through a glass pane and moves at a different pace. He diligently fulfills his tasks, but human contact is a forgotten and scary concept to him. Still on parole and working in a burger joint, one night he finds an abandoned baby in a dumpster. Unsure of what to do, and caught between being overwhelmed by affection and panic, Russ starts to 'thaw'. He finally finds connection to another human - and himself, through this baby which is lost, cast out and ignorant of the world around her- like him. He dares to come out of his emotional shell and go on the journey to retrace his past persona from that distant time 'before' , when he was Russky: A person, a son, a man and not a subject.

It's just nice.
4 November 2019 | by Smallclone100See all my reviews

Nice. It's just a nice film. Not bad, not great. Just nice. Directed by Logan Marshall Green, it's only around 80 minutes long. An ex con finds an abandoned baby in a dumpster and tries to figure out his next move.

Ethan Hawke isn't at his best but he does a good job. Elaine Hendrix is the standout even though she has about 8 minutes screen time.

It suffers from a few mis-steps early on because of character choices, and there is one terribly hokey voice over moment towards the end but it did the job for a Saturday night movie.
