This film tells the story of a young writer who goes back home to take care of his gravely ill mother.
I have the misconception that it is a comedy because Jesse Plemons is in it. The first half of the film is quite funny in a morbid way, and then the second half of the film is just very depressing. The story is very engaging because all the main characters are well crafted and the story telling is excellent. There are no filler scenes at all. I particularly care for the writer and his mother. I feel their pain. I just never expected this film to be so so good.
