In his evocative sophomore effort, set in a dystopian era when almost all the women have died of an unknown disease, Casey Affleck plays a father journeying through an oppressive landscape with his 11-year-old kid Rag; their only goal is to survive. This highly contemplative and stark picture confirms the filmmaker’s exceptional qualities in the realm of North American independent cinema.


Synopsis

In his evocative sophomore effort, set in a dystopian era when almost all the women have died of an unknown disease, Casey Affleck plays a father journeying through an oppressive landscape with his 11-year-old kid Rag; their only goal is to survive. Describing his highly contemplative and stark picture, in which he deftly interweaves several primary existential themes, the filmmaker states: “A parent wants to protect and teach a child, but a child wants to fend and learn for his or herself. In the world our film presents, where the threat to the child is so grave, this universal drama becomes a life or death decision.”
