Sean is an Irish evangelist who returns from Afghanistan and befriends Ike, an evangelist who works hard to secure his salvation. 

Focus & Homages / Rick Alverson
Premier latinoamericana

The relationship between a man of faith and a man filled with doubt is the heart of this sophomore effort from rocker Rick Alverson. Will Oldham, whom you should at least know as Bonnie “Prince” Billy, plays an evangelist redneck who works in a tire repair shop with the character played by screenwriter Colm O’Leary, a traumatized Irish immigrant who’s back home after having fought in Afghanistan. Alverson respects both points of view without the need to hide dirt under the rug, and achieves some great moments when those opposing views on the world try to reconcile. The filmmaker leaves any kind of revelations aside in a small film that’s about something else, and perhaps that is why it prefers to concentrate on different objects or small gestures, to which it devotes many extreme close-ups.
