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.

Simple, slow and heartwarming in the good way
10 January 2020 | by arsene-lupenSee all my reviews

No useless charming. No romance. Just simple life reboot after spending 20 years behind the bars for basically 'nothing'. Ethan Hawke did a great work again. Of course this movie might not be among that so called but less valued (by me only) 'blockbusters'. But I'm sure when he and Logan Marshall-Green winked at each other at the end of the shooting they both knew that it did worth it to make this movie. I'm looking for the next work of both of you.
