Written and directed by Rodrigo García (son of Gabriel García Márquez) and produced by Alfonso Cuarón, this largely two-man show stars Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke as pseudo-estranged half-brothers forced to reunite for their insufferable father’s funeral. Mostly It comes off like a stage play with dialogue that thinks it’s better than it is and a plot that we’ve seen countless times before. And by the time it slogs along to its inevitable ending, you’ve likely given up remembering why you were even here in the first place.

1.5/5 stars
