A case study of why you never, ever, ever want to buy a house alongside a major freeway.
Actually.... it's about a family that lives in a house at the end of a never completed highway. They seem incredibly happy and close. All is well. Then the project which has been on hold for 10 years is suddenly completed. Cutting them off from their lifestyle and causing both the family and the individuals to go into a cycle of decline that just gets worse and worse. It's listed as a comedy - but I don't think that's the most accurate description. I thought it was interesting for the first half - but as the problems mounted I started to become a bit less interested. By the end - where everything is pretty much falling I'd realized that I watched a well acted, well put together story that left me a little less than satisfied. It's possible though that any film you see at the end of a 3+ week festival may get held to a much higher bar than when one is fresher. So hard to really say what I'd think under different circumstances. Not bad - just not a standout for me given this year's field. But definitely something different than the norm.
