"Funny and active... compelling [with] crazy-ish detours to enjoy." Blu-ray.com.
Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnorak) and Academy Award winners Melissa Leo (The Fighter), and Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost) lead a dynamite ensemble cast in this alternately rollicking and poignant comedy from director Laurie Collyer (the acclaimed Sherrybaby). While caring for her mother (Goldberg), a young woman (Thompson) works part time at a prison. The rookie guard gets a chance to prove her mettle when she's tasked with accompanying a hell-raising inmate (Leo) on an emergency furlough to visit her dying mother. But things soon spiral out of control, sending the pair on a hilarious, surprising, and ultimately touching road trip. Oscar winner Anna Paquin, Edgar Ramirez, and La La Anthony co-star. -- (C) Shout Factory, 2018, USA.
