Johnny (Joaquin Phoenix) and his young nephew Jesse (Woody Norman) forge a tenuous but transformational relationship when they are unexpectedly thrown together in this delicate and deeply moving story about the connections between adults and children, the past and the future, from writer-director Mike Mills (20th Century Women).
Johnny is a kind hearted radio journalist deep into a project in which he interviews children across the USA about the world’s uncertain future. His sister, Viv (Gaby Hoffmann), asks him to watch her 9-year-old son while she tends to the child’s father, who’s suffering from mental health issues. After agreeing, Johnny finds himself connecting with his nephew in ways he hadn’t expected, ultimately taking Jesse with him on a journey from Los Angeles to New York to New Orleans.
A remarkably warm and sweet picture filmed in classy monochrome by the Oscar-nominated Irish cinematographer Robbie Ryan, C'mon C'mon shows that director Mills is unafraid of exploring raw, honest emotions on screen.
"Unguarded and achingly truthful...Norman carves out a jaw-dropping turn from delicate mood swings and mischievous charm." - Carlos Aguilar, The Wrap
