Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal) is dismissed from his job in a humiliating way, in front of his teenage son Joe (Ed Oxenbould). Over the last few years, the family had been moving cities regularly, in the hopes of finding a better life, which they believed to have finally found in a small town of Montana. Faced with this new situation—and dismissing his wife Jeanette (Carey Mulligan) and his son Joe’s pleads—Jerry decides to sign up to fight a devastating fire that is consuming the surrounding mountains. Left to their own devices, mother and son reconfigure their family, switching roles: Joe becomes the adult and Jeanette becomes the sole provider who ensures the family’s livelihood.
With Mexican DOP Diego García’s impeccable photography, acclaimed actor Paul Dano’s debut as a film is an elegant and detail-oriented intimate journey, full of nuances and complex characters; this has positioned him as a new strong voice in American cinema.
