Cinematographer Reed Morano (Kill Your Darlings, Frozen River, The Skeleton Twins), takes her first turn in the director’s chair with this masterfully crafted contemplation on a relationship strained to the breaking point. With virtuosity reminiscent of Kelly Reichardt, she navigates the strange moments that follow two people. Olivia Wilde and Luke Wilson capture unraveling emotions with remarkable power and persistence, alongside a cadre of exceptional supporting actors in Giovanni Ribisi, Elizabeth Moss, John Leguizamo, Juno Temple, Kevin Corrigan & Ty Simpkins (2015 Jurassic World)

Featured Guest: Olivia Wilde and Director Reed Morano
