A multigenerational tale tracking one family’s rise and fall over decades, as seen through the eyes of its youngest member, Jesse, an only child who develops an interest in art.
A family and a country come undone in Ricky D’Ambrose’s intricate, decades-spanning drama. Deploying a Bressonian framing of richly textured interiors and delicate hand gestures, these nostalgic glimpses at a fractured father-son bond meticulously conjure a bygone Long Island of the 1980s and 1990s.
