Director: Lila Neugebauer
Year Released: 2022
Physically and emotionally wounded Lynsey (Jennifer Lawrence) - who, as a part of the Army Corps of Engineers in Afghanistan, suffered brain damage from an improvised explosive device (IED) - returns to her childhood home in New Orleans to recover, gets a job cleaning out pools, takes her truck to be repaired, forms a bond with a mechanic (Brian Tyree Henry) ... but is determined to go back to the Middle East. It's a very surface-level "examination" (if you could call it that) of trauma that's dreadfully underwritten and carried by Lawrence's committed performance: even though production was delayed multiple times, she's totally locked in. It stays far away from bigger political issues or bothers to delve into why her character is so fixated on returning to a place she was almost killed (wanting to flee her mother and criminal brother is a weak excuse), but if you don't raise important questions you never have to address them.
