  • Al, a burned-out, milquetoasty, middle-aged engineer, nears his emotional breaking point when his rural out-of-town job falls through. Alone and shiftless, he stays on the road with vague hopes of recapturing the excitement of his boyhood summers at scenic Splatchee Lake, but what he finds instead is inspiration from the colorful lakeside locals, including the Kid, an ininhibited coonskin-capped junkman. The third effort from acclaimed independent auteur Di Cillo ("Living in Oblivion"), who cut his teeth as a cinematographer for Jim Jarmusch.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Some of the most appealingly human scenes in any film this year..." -- 3 1/2 out of 4 stars
    USA Today

    "...John Turturro brings welcome vulnerability and heart to his performance....[This] comedy has an agreeably easy feel..."

    "...A seductive fable....Amazingly fresh..."
    New York Times

    "...Keener, like DeCillo, makes us believe in someone and something that's elusive..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...[DiCillo is] a filmmaker with a streak of magic realism in him....The fact that he knows what he's doing, and how close it is to parody, adds a smile to the material..."
    Chicago Sun-Times
