Opens Friday, Jun 13, 2014 Synopsis: A neglectful single father struggles to forge a bond with his delinquent teenage son in order to reunite their fractured family. In the wake of his wife's death, grieving Hollis (Aaron Paul) gradually begins to withdraw from the lives of his motocross-obsessed son Jacob, and Jacob's impressionable younger brother Wes. When Jacob and Wes' increasingly destructive antics draw the attention of Child Protective Services, the younger sibling is promptly removed from his home and placed in the care of his Aunt Pam. Meanwhile, deeply shaken by the realization that his family is at serious risk of self-destructing, Hollis strives to own up to his mistakes, teach Jacob the importance of accountability, and bring the family back together before all hope is lost. Juliette Lewis, Josh Wiggins, and Deke Garner co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Aaron Paul, Juliette Lewis, Josh Wiggins, Deke Garner Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
