It’s hard to think of a recent movie that seems more concerned about award nominations than this Oscar-bait family drama set in the white-trash hills of Kentucky… but don’t be fooled. Amy Adams and Glenn Close are phenomenal, sure, but the movie itself is an overwrought mess that tries way, way, WAY too hard to check all the right boxes. Bless your heart if you don’t feel like you’ve just been played for 2+ hours.

1.5/5 stars
