Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro ("GoodFellas," "City by the Sea"), Emmy-winner Ellen Barkin ("Sea of Love," "The Big Easy") and Academy Award-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio ("The Departed," "Blood Diamond") star in the film adaptation of author Tobias Wolff's award-winning autobiographical novel. Set in the 1950s, this moving drama tells the story of a young boy and his divorced mother who travel cross-country in hopes of a better life. When his mother marries, the boy must struggle to endure a hostile and complex relationship with his tyrannical new stepfather while coming to terms with his own hopes and dreams. Newsweek called this film "stunning, smart, moving and made with passion. This is well crafted Hollywood filmmaking in full bloom."
