When you reach the top, is there anywhere to go but down? Former Britpop rock star Lachlan MacAldonich, in a sublime performance by Robert Carlyle, finds himself at this precipice as a once promising music career is now awash in booze and self- loathing. Director Marshall Lewy’s, sophomore effort is a moving departure from his feature debut, the comedy Blue State as Lachlan, now a farm manager in southern California, faces deportation after another ill-fated night of drinking and driving. Now in an effort to stave off expulsion from the U.S. he must reconnect with his ex-wife and the daughter he barely knows and finally face the demons he has been avoiding to reclaim a life teetering on the edge. –Michael Burke
