A stupid escapade in which he wound up taking the fall for two pals — one of them younger brother Ted (Ben Schwartz) — sent Chris Connelly (Duplass) into the state pen at age 18, where he stayed for the next two decades. He might well be there still if not for Mrs. Beasley, AKA Carol (Falco), who began by continuing his education long-distance behind bars, then became a determined petitioner for his release. Their communication became his lifeline in more ways than one, to the point where psychological intimacies shared made them interdependent — somewhat alleviating Carol’s interim marital woes, while also raising perhaps unrealistic expectations from Chris as to what their “relationship” might comprise upon his release.
He certainly doesn’t have much else to come back to in the perpetually rainy, economically depressed hamlet of Granite Falls, Wa. His long-ago friends are now neck-deep in adult commitments, which can’t be said for Ted, who seems to have done nothing with his life, and whose party pad is an unfortunate sole housing option for a big brother on parole. Nor are employment options plentiful for a newly released jailbird with no real-world work experience. Chris may simply have been a hapless bystander to a shooting death… but he’s still always going to be the guy who served the sentence for it, and hence must check the “felon” box on job applications.
The palpable thrill he and Carol take in reuniting is soon compromised by their very different roles on the “outside,” where she still must maintain a certain propriety as his former teacher. Then there’s the matter that she’s a wife and mother. Trying to integrate Chris more innocuously into her “family life,” she finds somewhat angsty teen daughter Hildy (Kaitlyn Dever) adopting this new “friend” almost more than is comfortable.
Only Hildy recognizes him for what he is: a teen misfit like herself, albeit one whose adolescence stalled when he went behind bars. But there’s no hope of a welcome from gruff husband Tom (Charles Leggett). Indeed, the arrival of keeningly affectionate, open Chris only underlines the extent to which Carol’s marriage has become a loveless obligation beyond salvage.
