A father reads to a child in bed

C’mon C’mon

  Mike Mills

  United States     108 minutes


Joaquin Phoenix, in a remarkably warm, sympathetic performance, plays Johnny, a restless radio documentary producer who flies across the country to visit his sister (Gaby Hoffmann) in hopes of reconnecting with his family. When an emergency forces his young nephew (Woody Norman) into his care, the two begin to form a tenuous but transformational relationship. From writer-director Mike Mills (20th Century Women, Beginners) comes a deeply moving story about the connections between generations, understanding the past, and facing the future.
