Storyline

John is a kindly, well-liked old man in a small rural town. John has just killed a man named Dutch. Dutch had done a lot of bad things to a lot of nice people. Nobody in town would think to implicate John - nobody but Danny, Dutch's violent drunk of a brother. John's nephew Ben arrives from Chicago on an impromptu trip to his hometown as his uncle struggles to evade Danny's growing suspicions and looming threats. In this masterfully acted tale of small-town intrigue, one man's need for revenge may cost many more their lives.

One of the best movies of 2015 !!!
13 October 2015 | by Mendocino-CaliforniaSee all my reviews

I personally would call this a masterpiece. This is so well constructed and put together on so many levels. I rarely see a movie of such caliber and will see this many more times just to see how well it was crafted.

This is a slow moving movie, and has many layers interweaving in and out all over the place like a masterfully scripted classical musical piece.

The relationship between the boy and girl is one of the best chemistry's I have ever seen on the silver screen. I just wanted to listen to them, wanted them to be together forever. I almost felt I was in their company their level of intimacy was so real and refreshing.

The acting was so brilliant most of the actors just drew you into to their world.

This movie is slow, its a thinker, and will leave you thinking long after the movie ends ... and that is the brilliance of a brilliant movie.
