“In the fall of 1960, when I was sixteen and my father was for a time not working, my mother met a man named Warren Miller and fell in love with him.  This was in Great Falls, Montana, at the time of the Gypsy Basin oil boom, and my father had brought us there…in the belief that people – small people like him – were making money in Montana or soon would be, and he wanted a piece of that good luck before all of it collapsed and was gone in the wind.”

This opening paragraph of Richard Ford’s novel inspired actor Paul Dano to want to direct. This first feature is a labour of love that Dano has been working on, off and on, for 6 years.  He’s brought it to the screen with help of some stellar acting support from Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhall.  It’s a powerfully melancholic period piece, elegant and sensitive, in which the on-screen silences are just as eloquent as the dialogue.
