An uncle is forced to take care of his teenage nephew after the boy's father dies.
This film is essential viewing on my path to the upcoming movie awards season. Casey Affleck is reminding everyone how good he really is, and the film is already generating some Oscar buzz. Plus, it's directed by Kenneth Lonergan, who has been nominated for screenplay Oscars twice and co-wrote Gangs of New York. The story looks to be filled with painfully imperfect characters on journeys of love, heartbreak, and redemption. Truly intrigued, and I have to know more.
