United States | 2014 | Debra Granik
Acclaimed indie filmmaker Debra Granik follows up her powerful dramas Down to the Bone and Winter’s Bone with a frank and surprising documentary about a Missouri Vietnam vet. Sixty-something Ron Hall is a Harley riding, trailer park residing good ol’ boy with ample tattoos and facial hair. He also suffers from PTSD, is learning Spanish, and loves dogs, his granddaughter, and his Mexican wife. Won the documentary award at the 39th Cleveland Int’l Film Festival. “Dedicates itself to breaking through the debris of clichéd, one-dimensional public impressions of vets, bikers, immigrant wives and kids and trailer-park lifestyles.” –Hollywood Reporter.
