With its non-professional cast, this sensitive drama, which explores the intimate relationship between a coal-miner’s daughter and her half-brother, is American independent cinema’s closest relation to Italian Neorealism. Presented by Nicolas Winding Refn in a beautiful new restoration by Peter Conheim and Ross Lipman, Joseph L Anderson’s film played international festivals in 2019 to great acclaim.
