Early in their careers, Dermot Mulroney and Lili Taylor delivered incisive performances in a road movie that simmers with beauty and tension. Mulroney plays a Montana teen who pulls away from volatile father Sam Shepard, setting out for Wyoming at the behest of charismatic stranger Taylor; she and costar Sheila McCarthy received Independent Spirit Award nominations. Future Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Ford synthesized his short stories into his only screenplay to date.

With Michael Fields and Richard Ford in person
