Texas, 1988. Thoughtful but passive-aggressive Alvin (Rudd) and Lance (Hirsch), the dim but well-meaning brother of his girlfriend, set to work on a Sisyphean task of remarking roads scorched by a forest fire. The journey isn't smooth, though, as news comes from back east and frictions start to grow.
Gordon Green follows up a pair of execrable comedies with a wise and witty slow-motion road trip that catches the sun.
