“If you must have plot, motive and payoff…See it anyway: It contains the whole world.”
LA Weekly

“American movies don’t come much smaller, subtler, or swoonier.”
The Boston Phoenix

“In this portrait of people formerly close who’ve grown apart, what remains unsaid is often as important as the little dialogue that is…”
Reverse Shot

Traveling by car and foot, two friends—expectant father Mark (Daniel London) and nomadic Kurt (Will Oldham)—trudge through the limits of friendship and masculinity in this minimalist character study which cemented Reichardt’s reputation as an iconoclastic American filmmaker to watch.

Presented in conjunction with Kelly Reichardt’s latest film, SHOWING UP, which opens April 14.
