Can’t talk to your kids? Joaquin Phoenix (in his first film since The Joker) quickly learns how, when he is suddenly saddled with his nephew in Mike Mills’ new transcontinental road movie. Phoenix is aided and abetted by Gaby Hoffman, in this never-sentimental but moving film. Played the Telluride and New York Film Festivals. Distributed by A24.
“A tremendous showing from Joaquin Phoenix, operating at a register he’s rarely found before. It’s a career best for him – lovely, empathetic, humane.” — Angelica Jade Bastién , New York Magazine/Vulture
“C’mon C’mon is a tender and turbulent melodrama that amplifies its power with a documentary current.” — Richard Brody , New Yorker
