A free-spirited 21-year-old woman strikes up an unlikely friendship with an elderly widow in this drama from writer/director Sean Baker (Take Out, Prince of Broadway). Young Jane (Dree Hemingway) has a fondness for cannabis, and a Chihuahua named Starlet that never leaves her side. One day, she happens across a garage sale at the home of lonely octogenarian Sadie (Besedka Johnson), and clashes with the aging widow while attempting to make a purchase. Later, upon investigating the item, Jane discovers that it contains a secret cache of money. Determined to help the acerbic Sadie solve the mystery of the hidden cash, Jane reaches out to Sadie, and finds the secrets of her past slowly bubbling to the surface as a warm bond grows between them. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    This movie came out of nowhere and really surprised me with its quiet power. Don't expect an action-packed thrill ride; this isn't that kind of movie. This is a relatively simple story of two people on the margins of society finding some comfort in their odd, tentative friendship. Great, naturalistic dialog and acting. The ending won't be for everyone but it took my breath away.
