Brand new release; DVD kept freezing and breaking up. Very poor quality. Putting another hold on this movie and hope to get a copy that can be viewed without issues. Reporting the problem to the library; hope staff remove from circulation.

When their late son's widow surreptitiously moves to North Dakota with her abusive new husband, Montana ranchers Kevin Costner and Diane Lane embark on a road trip to keep tabs on their young grandson. The family reunion doesn't go especially well; soon shotguns are a-blazing and butcher knives wielded. Until derailing in its implausible third act, director Thomas ("The Family Stone") Bezucha's adaptation of Larry Watson's 2013 novel is suitably gripping and impeccably acted (Costner and Lane are predictably aces, and Jeffrey Donovan, Will Brittain and a deliciously villainess Lesley Manville impress as the in-laws from hell). Bezucha also does a nice job of establishing the film's early-'60s setting without hitting you over the head with Boomer signifiers.
