14-year-old Joe is the only child of Jeanette and Jerry — a housewife and a golf pro — in a small town in 1960s Montana. Nearby, an uncontrolled forest fire rages close to the Canadian border, and when Jerry loses his job (and his sense of purpose) he decides to join the cause of fighting the fire, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves.

Viewing Notes

Dano’s directorial debut is a solid effort with a great cast. I missed this at DFF so I’m glad to have finally remembered to catch up to it.
