The Mend


With director John Magary in person

Dir. John Magary, 2014, 111 mins. DCP. With Josh Lucas, Stephen Plunkett, Mickey Sumner. Among the most distinctive American debuts in years, John Magary’s The Mend follows a mismatched yin-yang pair of New York brothers, loose cannon Mat (Lucas) and put-upon Alan (Plunkett) as they stagger dimly towards some understanding of love, women, masculinity, and brotherhood. From Lucas’s mesmerizingly unkempt charisma to a bracingly unpredictable score, this Gotham Award-nominated film careens along to a rhythm and tone entirely of its own devising.
