Grab the tissues, my dears. This one is a Kleenex super soaker. Thomasin McKenzie (who you may remember rapidly aging this summer in Old) plays Tom, the daughter of Ben Foster's Will, an Iraq War vet with severe PTSD. Due to his inability to remain in society, he has moved the two into the Oregonian forest wilderness where the two are largely cut off from the real world. When the duo are reported and kicked out of the park, however, they begin a long, painful journey to find a new home. While Will is desperate to remove himself from humanity again, Tom, a teenager, finds herself attracted to this new world full of possibilities. Watching these two, who desperately love each other but are learning they can't function in each other's worlds, is both gutting and powerful. The film is sitting on a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score and SHAME on every Academy voter who didn't give this movie it's due in a year where Greenbook, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Vice were eating noms like candy.
Watch it on Hulu.
