Lila Neugebauer directs Jennifer Lawrence, Brian Tyree Henry and Linda Emond in this drama where a veteran struggles to rehabilitate herself back into civilian life.
Two very strong lead performances in a perfectly adequate drama. Neugebauer paces scenes strangely, holding on to nothing after the text has finished, immersing us in Lawrence’s brain damaged vet’s warped world view. You want to like it for more than it is.
