  • Summary: A lyrical road journey through the flat plains of Oklahoma, Sterlin Harjo’s second feature follows an older, estranged Native American couple as they visit the stations of their fractured relationship. A frank, unsentimental love story, the film is also a love letter to the people and places of the director’s home state. (Lorber Films) Expand

  1. Most notable for its evocative photography of the bleak Oklahoma landscapes and for the memorable turns by its two leads, who bring a haunting, world-weary gravitas to their performances that feels utterly authentic.
  2. The quiet humanity of the performances infuses the movie with a truthfulness that outweighs its flaws.
  3. 60
    An overall lack of drive drops the pacing from languorous to a slow, stalled crawl, but the journey itself isn’t the point here. For once, it’s the destination--forgiveness--that really counts.
