However, the absence of her father is taking a toll on Sadie, who has become increasingly rebellious and angry.
Sadieâs main focus is trying to bring her father back home from the war. She spends hours writing letters to him and listening to the radio for any news about the conflict. She is convinced that if she can just do something to get her father out of the war, they can be a family again. However, when her mother begins to see another man, Sadie becomes even more determined to keep her family together.
Meanwhile, Rae struggles with her own issues, trying to make ends meet and dealing with her own loneliness. When she meets a man named Cyrus, she finds herself drawn to him, and Sadie becomes fiercely protective of her mother. She starts to spy on Cyrus and becomes convinced that he is not good for her mother.
As Rae tries to navigate her own complicated feelings and relationship with Cyrus, Sadie becomes increasingly unstable. She starts to lash out at her friend Francis and other people around her, and her obsession with her fatherâs return becomes even more entrenched.
The tension between Sadie and Cyrus comes to a head in a dramatic showdown, and the consequences of their actions have far-reaching effects on everyone involved.
Sophia Mitri Schloss delivers a powerful performance as Sadie, perfectly capturing the frustration, anger, and sadness that define her character. Melanie Lynskey is equally compelling as Rae, imbuing her character with a quiet strength and vulnerability.
John Gallagher Jr. rounds out the cast as Raeâs new love interest, Cyrus. He brings a subtle menace to the character, making it clear that there is something off about him, even if itâs not always clear what that is.
The film is beautifully shot, with a muted color palette that perfectly captures the bleakness of Sadieâs world. The score is haunting and adds to the overall sense of unease that permeates the film.
