What’s the movie about
The Oscar-winning actress (per Bright side) plays the protagonist named Lynsey, a military engineer who returned to the United States from Afghanistan with a debilitating brain injury following a bomb explosion.
In recovery, which is slow and painful, she must re-learn to walk and retrain her memory aided by a chatty but tender keeper (Jayne Houdyshell). When he returns home to New Orleans, however, he is faced with even more distressing and challenging memories than those he experienced while on duty: a showdown with his childhood.
Left with her mother (Linda Emond), with whom she has a strained relationship, Lynsey would just like to return to her job as an engineer, but her doctor (Stephen McKinley Henderson) is wary and so, in the meantime, gets a job as a pool cleaner. When her pickup truck breaks down, she meets James Aucoin (Brian Tyree Henry), who works in a garage and offers her a ride home; slowly the two begin to rely on each other for companionship and comfort, and Lynsey discovers that James is also repressing the traumas of her past.
The budding friendship between these two damaged souls forms the center and heart of Lila Neugebauer’s first feature film: a quiet but devastating and above all uplifting story about coming to terms with oneself and moving forward.
As mentioned, the film is directed by Lila Neugebauer (the Broadway show The Waverly Gallery, Maid, The Last Thing He Told Me) and written by Ottessa Moshfegh & Luke Goebel and Elizabeth Sanders. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle – Appearances can be deceiving) and Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta, Bullet Train, If Beale Street Could Talk). The film is produced by Lawrence and Justine Ciarrocchi. Lila Neugebauer, Jacob Jaffke, Sophia Lin, Patricia Clarkson, Kirk Michael Fellows and Christopher J. Surgent are executive producers.
