  • Director: Kent Jones

For Diane (Mary Kay Place), everyone else comes first. Generous but with little patience for self-pity, she spends her days checking in on sick friends, volunteering at her local soup kitchen, and trying valiantly to save her troubled, drug-addicted adult son (Jake Lacy) from himself. But beneath her relentless routine of self-sacrifice, Diane is fighting a desperate internal battle, haunted by a past she can’t forget and which threatens to tear her increasingly chaotic world apart.

"Every moment in Jones’s film is so precisely textured that it becomes fantastical."
- Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
"[A] naturalistic portrait of service and self-sacrifice by way of a quietly astonishing title performance by Mary Kay Place."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"The movie is populated by people we seldom see in mainstream films, so seldom that we may not remember the pleasure we've been missing."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"The more adventurous or open-hearted may step into this film and find a kind of translucent everyday poetry. "
- Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Mary Kay Place delivers one of the year's best performances in this shattering character study from writer-director Kent Jones in a narrative feature debut that sneaks up and floors you."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Kent has assembled a superb group of character actors here, who tell lived-in stories with extraordinary sensitivity and grace. It is a great pleasure to see actors who know how to use every bit of their real, unfixed faces to show the subtlest details of thought and emotion. "
- Nell Minow, RogerEbert.com
"Jones makes both narrative and formalistic leaps, which won’t be spoiled here, that initially are jarring in comparison to the lo-fi aesthetic that precedes it, but truly open the film up to broader implications about how we hold onto the past events and how they constantly resurface. "
- Christian Gallichio, The Playlist
"It’s a tender, wrenching, and beautifully made movie, and part of what’s revelatory about it is that it’s a story of boomers who are confronting the ravages of old age (disease and death, the waning of dreams), yet they’re doing it with a stubborn echo of the hopes and desires they had when they were younger. "
- Owen Gleiberman, Variety
