SYNOPSIS

Devastated by the loss of a child, middle-aged father Dan struggles to control his anger at work and grows distant from his grief-stricken family. When a stranger (Dolly De Leon, Triangle of Sadness) bullies him into joining a floundering community theater production of Romeo and Juliet, Dan slowly begins to reopen to life’s possibilities. With breakout performances from the real-life Kupferer family in the lead roles and a cathartic ending for the ages, this funny and bittersweet film celebrates the profound love at the heart of the deepest grief, and the pleasures of putting on a show.

REVIEWS

“O’Sullivan has a natural storytelling gift, coupled with a knack for comedy. Here, she takes… grieving families, difficult teens, small-town communities — and rearranges them into a surprising and moving narrative.”

Peter Debruge

Variety

“O’Sullivan and Thompson are aces at tucking themes, concepts, and ideas into their films that, in other directors’ hands, might feel a bit cheesy or chintzy. Instead, the duo handles them with the utmost respect and care.”

Kate Erbland

indieWire

“There’s an appealing naturalness to the project, probably owing to its tight-knit origins: O’Sullivan and Thompson are real-life partners directing a real-life family in their city, Chicago.”

Adrian Horton
