Movie Info & Cast


A year after the violent death of her celebrity husband, widow Katherine (Katherine Waterston) is still mourning his loss. Her grief is complicated by an inability to stop thinking about the circumstances that lead to her loss.

As Katherine deals with her husband’s overbearing, bitter mother (Julie Khaner) and her own ailing mom (Mary Kay Place, of Diane) she has intimate moments with a strange businessman (Michael Shannon) staying in her hotel, and her husband’s sleazy friend, Emile (Luke Evans). This hazy, sometimes perfectly seedy neo-noir from writer/director Meredith Danluck is as colorful as it is moody, and constantly surprising.

Danluck's unfocused direction makes Katherine less a grief-struck enigma than a dull somnambulist; and the film's copious flashbacks, instead of drawing us into the character's confused emotions, mostly suggest that the film can't decide how to tell its story.

Danluck (“North of South, West of East”) gets us halfway there, with a solid cast and crew, an apt depiction of emotional exhaustion, and a heroine we want to root for in a strange setting we’re ready to embrace. But she floats too ineffectually between dream and nightmare, never settling on one or committing to the other.

There is not enough in the performances or the script to set it apart from the constant flow of indie crime dramas.
