Starring acclaimed actors John Hawkes and Logan Lerman, this gentle and heartfelt road trip movie traverses the rocky emotional terrain of an estranged father and son working their way through grief and years of personal resentment. After the death of their respective wife and mother, they set out to fulfill a final wish of having her ashes spread out over a remote lake in rural Ireland. A story of reconciliation and healing, the film’s sensitive screenplay creates space for the two leads to deliver richly layered performances that beautifully echo one another and examine the ways in which trauma can be passed down from generation to generation. Gorgeously photographed, the film is a love letter to rolling hills and lush valleys of The Emerald Isle and offers a picturesque landscape that beautifully accents the aching family drama at its center. END OF SENTENCE quietly weaves a subtle narrative using elements of humor, love, and loss to create a universal portrait of the human experience. — R.J.T.
