From writer/director Mike Mills and starring Joaquin Phoenix, Gaby Hoffmann and Woody Norman. C'mon, C'mon from the Telluride Film Festival screens from the 17th February.
Joaquin Phoenix follows up his intense, Oscar-winning turn in Joker with the diametrical opposite role. In Mike Mills’ warm, insightful, beautifully shot drama, the actor plays Johnny, an emotionally stunted and soft-spoken radio journalist who travels the country interviewing a variety of kids about their thoughts concerning their world and their future. Then Johnny’s saddled with caring for his young nephew Jesse (a remarkable Woody Norman). Jesse brings a new perspective and, as they travel from state to state, effectively turns the emotional tables on Johnny. The result is an understated yet deeply moving semi-documentary tapestry about the hopes and dreams and fears we all share—both as kids and as grown-ups—and the unlikely ways in which we bury and avoid them.
