Grieving over the death of his wife, Bill Palet (in a subtly charismatic performance by JK Simmons) makes a bold move, packing up his life and adolescent son to start anew in LA. With a striking performance by up-and-coming actor Josh Wiggins as Wes, the father-son relationship permeates the story as they each contend with their grief, assisted by the relationships they build.

Wes finds solace in new friends and pursuits, but this sense of "normal" is upended as Bill falls into a debilitating depression. Struggling to keep a grip on their lives, their story is intertwined with two women — a discerning French professor (Julie Delphy) who cares deeply for her students, and a troubled girl (impeccably played by Odeya Rush) whose kindness is obscured by a dark reputation.

Witty, heartening and full of honest sentiment and fresh dialog, The Bachelors explores how grief can sabotage our ability for compassion, while love has the power to drive healing. — Colton Cox
