Movie Info

It's another summer in Glen Allan, Mississippi for fourteen-year-old Robbie Hendrick. His wayward Mother has run off again fearing a breakdown and he's left with the responsibility of caring for his younger, half-brother Fess. But he's as hopeful as ever that his dream of a family will be realized this year. In the meantime, Robbie and Fess find ways to burn the days together. They visit a cotton field and, with their homemade accoutrements, battle invisible soldiers imagined from a children's book Fess owns. They swim the granite quarry, diving deep to find the coins tossed in as wishes, and use their pilferage to buy colas and sandwiches. They do the things brothers in the summer...

All Critics (2)

A slow-burn, Mississippi-set drama that is steeped in atmosphere and a gritty, sweaty sense of place but that suffers from its lack of narrative momentum.
