“Do you know why this is my favorite tree? Because it tipped over and it’s still growing.”
This felt like an unintentional spirit sequel/prequel to American Honey where we see the life through the eyes of naive children. Brutally honest, and rich in character. One of the best movies of the year for sure.
A touching movie with great photography, good performances, and a few jump scares. It doesn’t really take any risks or break into any new territory, but it succeeds at drawing you in and making you feel for the characters and ultimately reflect upon your own experiences with loss, grief, and working through it all.
