Melissa Leo is always fabulous, but this movie didn't have enough to the story to really understand her character.

Melissa Leo gives a strong performance, saying a great deal with body language where her character does not have much dialogue. If you have ever felt like an outsider--particularly if you've ever felt like you like animals more than you do people--you will get this film. I saw it at the New Orleans Film Festival, where it wore a jury prize.

melissa leo proving yet again what raw delivery she's capable of... just too bad we weren't allowed to connect with her character enough not to lose patience with her.

A harsh look at the reality of an ex-convict, Francine (Melissa Leo), adjusting to life outside of prison in a small lakeside town. A rough watch, but a well told story nonetheless.
This is a strong character piece and may seem slow to most movie goers, but as heartbreaking as the film is, it delivers and leaves you somewhat beside yourself to think about your own choices.
