Liza Johnson's stunning feature debut recasts the familiar narrative of a soldier coming home from war as an ode to a woman's journey of self-discovery and her attempts to fit into the life she thought she was fighting for. As the central figure, Kelli, actor Linda Cardellini is a revelation—a hero without a grand story to tell, a mother without a connection to her children, a wife who doesn't recognize the love her husband (a sweet, vulnerable Michael Shannon) is so ready to give her. This is a story of and for our time, luminously shot and honestly told.
