Paul Dano is turning into thee premier actor of his generation. With each turn in front of the camera he makes a stronger and stronger case for himself. He’s on his way to becoming the next Gary Oldman, who in my opinion, is one of if not the best character actors of all time. Dano can inhabit a role to the point where you believe that the character he is playing isn’t a character at all. He puts his all and everything into every performance and this looks like it isn’t the exception to the rule.
Paul Dano plays a musician who is struggling to break into the business. He finds himself in a legal struggle with his estranged wife over custody of their young daughter played by the adorable Shaylena Mandingo (She has a BIG future in this business). Jon Heder also plays a supporting role as a lawyer in this Sundance Film Festival ‘Grand Jury Prize’ nominee.
