Keywords: Drama

Seeking meaning, Robert Dupea eschews his upper-class family for life as an oil-rig worker and a simpleton wife he seems to actively dislike. But he finds no meaning there either. After his father suffers a stroke he returns home, forcing a re-evaluation of his choices. Unfolding character study of personal insecurity, restlessness, and squandered potential. Received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor and Actress, and Best Screenplay.
