Feat. George Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Amara Miller
George Clooney plays a land heir attempting to reconnect with his family after a serious accident befalls his wife in this seriocomic mid-life drama from dir. Alexander Payne (SIDEWAYS).

Heartfelt father-son road trip drama shot entirely on Kodak motion picture film.
