Plot Summary

Young nun Colleen (Addison Timlin) is avoiding all contact with her family until an email from her mother announces that her brother is home. Upon returning to her childhood home in Asheville, N.C., she finds her old room exactly how she left it - painted black and covered in goth/metal posters. Although her parents are happy to see her, unease and awkwardness abound, and her brother is living as a recluse in the guesthouse since returning home from the war in Iraq.

    It's a quiet and gentle film, emotional but not manipulatively sentimental, sad but not nihilistic, Marilyn Manson epigram and Goth-font chapter markers notwithstanding. show more

    Flirting with sitcommy high jinks, Clark instead gives us a bittersweet cocktail of soul-weary defeat and unassuming vigor. show more

    Clark is a talent to watch. He's made a transfixing film about a family that looks touchingly and unnervingly like yours and mine. show more
