Sensitive 16-year-old Joe is the only child of Jeanette and Jerry — a housewife and golf pro in a small town in 1960s Montana. Nearby, an uncontrolled forest fire rages close to the Canadian border, and when Jerry loses his job and his sense of purpose he decides to join the cause of fighting the fire, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into the role of an adult, Joe witnesses his mother embark on her own adventure, as she transgresses into an affair with an older man.

“It’s striking to see such a proven actress [like Carey Mulligan] deliver what’s so clearly the best work of her career, but it’s unsurprising that [Paul] Dano knows what to do with his cast.” – David Ehrlich, Indiewire
“Dano, it’s immediately clear, is a natural-born filmmaker, with an eye for elegant spare compositions that refrain from being too showy; they rarely get in the way of the story he’s telling.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety
