Texas, the ’70s: childhood sweethearts Ruth (Mara) and Bob (Affleck) are split apart when Bob goes to jail, and she is left to bring up their unborn child. Years later he escapes, and Ruth, her daughter and the police wait to see if he’ll show up.
An initially captivating but finally trying attempt at resuscitating the glory-glory days of the ’70s by a talented director who needs to find his own voice.
