Movie Info

The usually quarreling Greenstein brothers Seth (Karpovsky) and Stanley (writer/director Stephen Gurewitz reluctantly agree to join their father, Marvin, for a weekend trip in rural Minnesota. Estranged from each other, the threesome of inept outdoorsmen rediscover repressed grudges as the weekend comically devolves into a series of daytime drinking episodes and botched outdoor pursuits . A serious comedy of deceit and stilted emotions, the sharp relationships in Marvin, Seth and Stanley are buffered by the warmth of an autumnal Midwestern landscape authentically captured through 16mm color cinematography.

It still has sublime moments, but it leaves you wanting more of them.

Shot in '70s naturalism, the film's cinematography only invites unfavorable comparisons to the more ambitious, psychologically searching interpersonal dramas of that era.

As for Marvin Gurewitz, he's got the role of a lifetime, and he invests it with a lifetime of experience and just the tinge of bemused irony that keeps the story away from bathos and sentiment.
