Tessa Thompson, Academy Award(R) winner Melissa Leo, and Whoopi Goldberg lead a dynamite ensemble cast in this alternately rollicking and poignant comedy from director Laurie Collyer (the acclaimed Sherrybaby). In between caring for her mother (Goldberg), a young woman (Thompson) works part time at a prison. The rookie guard gets a chance to prove her mettle when she’s tasked with accompanying a hell-raising inmate (Leo) on an emergency furlough to visit her dying mother. But things soon spiral out of control, sending the pair on a hilarious, surprising, and ultimately touching road trip. With Oscar(R) winner Anna Paquin, Édgar Ramírez, and La La Anthony.
