Ellis (Ethan Peck, definitely an actor on the rise) and Carter (Adam Rothenberg (ditto) are brothers; their mother is dead and their father has a history of abusing the boys to the point that Ellis and Carter no longer see him. Ellis is a photographer by hobby, taking photographs of mountains and landscapes in their Tennessee small town: Carter drinks too much but looks after his younger brother. Ellis is diagnosed as having leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant - Carter offers but despite being siblings the match is not adequate. The brothers set out on a trip to be together and end up in New Mexico. But soon they are on the road again and in Texas they pause at a diner where they meet Krystal (Mariah Carey) waiting tables, but preferring to write songs. Seeing that the brothers have no money, Krystal takes them home - she is married to an alcoholic Texas Ranger Frank (Lance Reddick) who routinely beats her and demands that the 'freeloaders' be gone in the morning. The next morning the three of them take the car and head to Tennessee - the boys have decided that Ellis' only hope is to find their father to see if he is a candidate to donate bone marrow.Read more ›
The plot and story is not only original and believable it contains surprise a few surprises throughout the film that generally aren't expected in dramas. with a great main plot and characters whose own background and in depth story plots keep you interested and engaged.
Acting, Ethan Peck gives a moving and believable performance, Adam Rothenberg (whom i never heard of previously) delivers an on target portrayal of his troubled and overwhelmed character, and Mariah Carey who even after redeeming herself in Precious surprisingly shines thoughout the feature. On screen most the film she dose so well I forgot she was Mariah.
Truly a Gem and a find
