The methodological certainty that governs college mathematician Claire Hunger's (BREAKING BAD's Betsy Brandt) life is shattered when her ornithologist husband Paul (Chris Beetem, BLACK HAWK DOWN) fails to return from a nature hike. When several search parties that have taxed the small town's resources fail to turn anything up, there is speculation that Paul disappeared deliberately but Claire is resolute that Paul - who suffers from debilitating dizzy spells - is still out there and draws encouragement from the horror stories of others who spent extended periods lost in the wilderness. As Claire and her son Connor (Zev Haworth) experience loss at their own pace, they find themselves assailed by friends, co-workers, and counselors who well-intentioned efforts to help them move on seem insensitive or even pushy. Claire is particularly disturbed to learn that her husband was working on an art project with pretty graduate student Allison (Anna Margaret Hollyman, THE DEN) who reveals a side of Paul of which Claire was unaware (most troubling to here because she does not know if he hid things from her or if she was just not listening when he confided them). Despite Allison's claims that there was nothing improper between Paul and herself, her intimate knowledge of Paul's inner life disturbs Claire and she starts to see the other woman as a threat to her bond with her son who finds comfort in discovering a whole different side of his father through the seemingly well-meaning Allison. A fascinating, low-key meditation on grief and feelings of estrangement caused by the loss of a loved one as well as the foundation-shaking uncertainty that can accompany the hole they leave behind.

Comments

Breaking Glass' single-layer encode of this Red Scarlet-lensed film seems adequate for the film's naturalistic, warm, and filmically-soft look. The 5.1 track is conservative in the surrounds apart from some party scenes but the subdued nature suits the perspective of the protagonist. English Closed Captioning is included. A couple deleted scenes are included and they were wisely excised as they are too expositional in nature, and the points made in them are conveyed more effectively if not as succinctly in the finished film.
