Troubled teen Sam (George Ferrier) got pulled out of boarding school by distant widowed dad Robert (Martin Csokas), but only because he was expected to help care for the now-hobbled British grandmother he'd never met-retired war journalist and functioning alcoholic Ruth (Charlotte Rampling). The tense arrangement winds up creating a surprising and helpful rapport in this evocative study from New Zealand. Edith Poor also stars. 95 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English; theatrical trailers.
