Mean Dreams

Director: Nathan Morlando Year: 2016 Run Time: 108min

The life of teen Jonas (Josh Wiggins) is dominated by his father’s struggle to keep the family farm afloat and his mother’s ongoing battle with severe depression. When Casey (Sophie Nélisse) moves in down the road, the two click immediately. But while most parents would be happy to see their children find this kind of relationship, Jonas’ father sees Casey as a distraction, while Casey’s father, Wayne (Bill Paxton), an alcoholic police deputy prone to explosive outbursts, sees Jonas as competition. With nowhere to turn, Jonas and Casey are faced with an impossible decision.
