Davies’ unusually linear script retells a coming-of-age story in the Deep South that sits in marked contrast to his more familiar northern England locales.

Nonetheless, Davies manages to graft the Southern Gothic seamlessly onto his lyrical long takes and outsider’s sensibility.

Gena Rowlands, as the washed-up but indefatigable torch singer aunt, cements her “actor’s actor” reputation with a multi-layered and audacious performance.
