Otto Wall is just a little unlucky, in life and, unbeknownst to him, in love. When his wife suddenly asks for a divorce, he bounces between a Facebook-fueled search for answers, desperate attempts to reconnect with his daughter, and his fateful reentry into the dating pool. Let’s just say, you won’t forget Debbie Spangler’s name anytime soon.
Junebug screenwriter Angus MacLachlan returns to the verdant woods of North Carolina for this sharp and sensitive directorial debut. He finds an ideal straight man in Paul Schneider as a husband and father finding redemption in breaking loose from his mundane routine.
