Acting icon of American independent film, Paul Dano debuts as director with an adaptation of a novel focusing on a thoughtful boy named Joe, whose adolescence in 1960s Montana is marked by his parents’ catastrophic marriage crisis. This solidly-built psychological drama features engaging performances from Carey Mulligan, Jake Gyllenhaal, and, above all, 16-year-old Ed Oxenbould.


Acting icon of American independent film Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine, Meek’s Cutoff) debuts as director with this adaptation of Richard Ford’s novel about a thoughtful boy named Joe whose adolescence in 1960s Montana is marked by the catastrophic marital crisis of his parents: Jeanette, a stay-at-home mom, and Jerry, who works at a golf course. “It is a coming-of-age story for all three: mother, father, and son,” says Dano, who wrote the script in collaboration with Zoe Kazan. This meticulously constructed psychological drama features excellent performances from Carey Mulligan, Jake Gyllenhaal and, above all, 16-year-old Ed Oxenbould.
