Shot over the course of five years, this documentary-style feature from prolific English filmmaker Michael Winterbottom offers a masterful meditation on the daily travails of a family living apart from their imprisoned patriarch. The film stars John Simm as a man named Ian who is imprisoned for drug smuggling and charts his relationship with his wife Karen, played by Shirley Henderson.
