Story


"Virginia" (Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly), is a charming, vibrant, and well...completely psychologically disturbed mother of Emmett (Harrison Gilbertson), the sweetest illegitimate 16-year-old boy a mom could ask for. She has been entangled in a secret 20-year love affair with Richard Tipton (4-time Academy Award nominee Ed Harris), a highly visible, local Mormon Sheriff running for a seat on the state senate. Both Virginia and Tipton have their own pasts to protect... a situation that quickly escalates when Emmett becomes focused on a romantic relationship with Tipton's daughter, Jessie (Emma Roberts). The film also stars academy award nominee Amy Madigan as Tipton's wife, Roseanna, and Toby Jones as Max.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the result here is the type of calamity that should be more compelling than it is..”
by Scott Tobias [NPR]
“..the movie as a whole falls victim to a dewy kind of Tennessee Williams-itis..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
“..the variously eccentric characters and their flat Americana-kitsch backdrop never really feel like they're part of the same movie, either..”
by Benjamin Mercer [Village Voice]
