This is a beautifully rendered portrait of a family's dark and tragic journey over one summer in 1950s Missouri, one of the most unique films I've seen in decades. I'm a retired nurse, and two of my relatives were in motor vehicle accidents in which they sustained frontal lobe brain injuries. Behavioural changes in many individuals are so extreme that their families can no longer recognise their loved one. It's comparable to Alzheimer's and/or death. A man on a talk show had been in an accident, and when he emerged from his coma, he no longer loved his wife and children. He simply wasn't the person he once was. Florida serial killer Bobby Joe Long said in an interview that after a devastating accident that left him with frontal lobe brain trauma, his impulse control, violent temperament and sex addiction increased a thousand fold. Let me be clear. I haven't been given info that every person who gets hit hard on the forehead is going to go insane, but when Grace Bretthorst Jones was hit by a truck crossing a highway on her wedding day, something so tragic happened that only the most seasoned experts in neuroscience and psychiatry could say what would be best for her. This was the 50s though, and they were still learning, and small town, middle America didn't know that a ticking time bomb had just come home. Landy meant no harm. He thought he was saving his sister. What went on in the asylum that caused Scott Wilson to question Landy's decision? Grace had been pleading with Landy to come get her, and he didn't fully comprehend what he was taking her away from. Still, he caved, and went to bring her home. To anyone who thinks this is a light hearted Christian family flick, you are so far off the mark. I thought that was what I'd see. Instead, this movie punched me in my gob. It's a suspence thriller, not a Hitchcock horror or a whodunnit, but a heart wrenching, rain drenching race against a devastating flood that threatens hundreds of lives, and the sudden realisation that Grace is not okay, and the harrowing race against time to protect Landy's family from someone he thought he knew, and saved.
