What a shame that the first film to star venerable stage actress Amy Morton is this terminally arty drama.

Earnestly well-intentioned and doggedly uncommercial, this is the kind of film that's worth rooting for in principle, but a solid cast and evocative 35 mm photography can't compensate for its slightly stultifying familiarity.

Without a variation in the film's morose tone, it comes off as a slice of rust belt misery.

Knitted-together by its sense of place and lived-in performances, yet unraveled by anemic false melodrama and overbearing music.
