“This is a superb film.” David Edelstein, New York Magazine. Fourteen-year-old Joe is the only child of a housewife (Carey Mulligan) and a golf pro (Jake Gyllenhaal) in a small town in 1960s Montana. When the father loses his job, he joins the firefighters battling an uncontrolled forest fire raging close to the Canadian border. His wife and son are left to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into the role of an adult, Joe witnesses his mother’s struggle as she tries to keep her head above water.
