“A tattoo artist and a banjo player meet, marry, and live happily ever after, only to have their lives shattered when their young daughter is diagnosed with a grave illness. An unlikely mash-up of old-fashioned melodrama and bluegrass musical, this newest film from the gifted Belgian director Felix van Grœningen (The Misfortunates) takes us on a one-of-a-kind emotional journey that will not leave a dry eye in the house.” Christopher Kelly.
111 minutes; R; Flemish with English subtitles
