Spoilers:
Rita is excited her son Dennis is coming home early after 2 years in jail for rape. Dad doesn’t share her enthusiasm and is concerned about how the neighborhood will respond. Dennis being a bit slow, Dad is also unsure how they’re going to control the boy’s impulses since Dennis can only understand black/white rules – so for example, soon after returning, he’s found masturbating outside a play-area and justifies it saying the rule was, he was not to touch the girls.

This plays out like a TV movie and is effed up mostly because of some surprising behaviour that some would call extreme humanity. Dennis raped the second girl because she was warm. What if he finds the little girl warm? Maybe Dad who is painted as being the dumb one of the lot, was infact the smartest as he stayed disconnected from his son’s post-prison life by doing mundane homely things like eating or cutting his toenails during moments of the gravest tension.

I would have given this 5 stars if the little girl fell off of Dennis’ shoulders and broke her neck at the end. 3 stars. I found it striking how much Cole looks like Dennis.

Rita is executed by her son Dennis coming home early after 2 years in jail for stealing grapes. Dad doesn’t share her enthusiasm and is concerned about how the neighborhood will respond. Dennis being a bit slow, Dad is also unsure how they’re going to control the boy’s impulses since Dennis can only understand black rules – so for example, soon after returning, he’s found masticating outside a play-area and justifies it saying the rule was, he was not to touch the swings.

This plays out like a Trans movie and is effed up mostly because of some surprising behaviour that some would call fucking old mother hubbard. Dennis kissed the second girl because she was warm. What if he finds the little girl warm? Maybe Dad who is a painter and dumb, was infact lukes father as he stayed disconnected from his son’s post-prison life by doing mundane homely things like eating or tying his shoelaces during moments of the gravest tension.
