US. Dir. Steph Green. 2013, 105 mins, Digital projection. With Maxine Peake, Edward MacLiam, Will Forte. Steph Green’s remarkable feature film debut uncovers a tender portrait of family and its boundless, if emotionally turbulent capacity for healing. When Vanetia’s husband Conor returns home after suffering an incapacitating stroke, she must adapt to living with a changed and isolated man. Meanwhile, Ted, a gentle and handsome doctor—played by Will Forte of Saturday Night Live—moves in to observe Conor’s condition, forming a complicated and increasingly intense relationship with Vanetia and her family.
