A Country Called Home (2015)

2015 | USAAnna Axster★★★

Anna Axster's female-driven, Texas-set A Country Called Home is an occasionally clichéd and vaguely patronising though generally touching low-key drama, featuring convincingly well-drawn characters and sensitively adroit performances from Imogen Poots, Mackenzie Davis, Mary McCormack, et al.


"A Country Called Home is a compelling coming of age story with universal appeal because it deals with trials and trepidations that most people experience in one way or another, no matter who they are or where they are from. The story incorporates the views of people from all walks of life; different generations, different places, and different socio-economic backdrops. Hence main character Ellie’s journey of growth and forgiveness is grounded in a rich and multifaceted setting. Her story was inspired by director / writer Anna Axster’s travels and observations throughout the United States with her musician husband, Ryan Bingham." acountrycalledhome.com
