    The rugged, hard nosed Sam Elliot you know and love from Netflix's The Ranch teams up with Netflix's Orange is the New Black's Laura Prepon for viewers benefits in this drama. You won't be disappointed. I pre-ordered this movie and was surprised to see it arrive on its release date-neatly packed as always. Thanks Best Buy!

    This is a really good story! If you love Sam Elliott and "life" stories with the development of characters, then this is a can't miss movie. One of the best performances by Sam Elliott; Krysten Ritter is great; this story about the autumn years of one's lifetime will not disappoint!

    What happens when your first effort is your best? How do you get out of that shadow? Can you? I know of no one who delivers a pause, the space in-between, better. This is a character-driven movie all the way, enjoy this.

    As a big fan of Sam Elliott, I like to watch his new movies. Yes he's getting older, but who isn't. This is a good story and Sam learns lessons about people in a powerful, positive way.

    I was thinking that the movie was a Western instead it was about an actor that played The Hero in Western movies. I was looking for action but found drama in a confused fashion

    I sure hope this isn't his last role. I don't think he could have had a worst role. This is nothing like I thought a Sam Elliott movie should be.
