This is a very powerful movie, led by a strong lead performance by Peter Mullan. He stars as Joseph, a rageful and violent man who is starting to see his own flaws but can't seem to change. He meets a woman, Hannah, and the movie documents a transitioning time in both their lives.
I kind of put off watching this, these intense emotionally painful movies are not what I'm usually in the mood to watch, but this wasn't as hard…
