CAUSEWAY

MIND THE GAP | US CINEMA

US 2022, 92 min, Director: Lila Neugebauer

Lila Neugebauer’s moving portrait of healing and friendship follows Lindsay (Oscar®-winner Jennifer Lawrence), a soldier recovering from a serious injury at home in New Orleans but anxious to redeploy to Afghanistan. When she meets James (Brian Tyree Henry, If Beale Street Could Talk, MVFF41), a kindhearted mechanic reeling from a tragic and life-altering accident of his own, the pair forms an unexpected bond. The actors are phenomenal, beautifully inhabiting Lindsay and James’s intimate and tender relationship with grounded and nuanced performances. Making a remarkable feature debut, veteran theater director Neugebauer infuses this emotionally profound drama with a deep sense of compassion and understanding. Causeway highlights the quiet power in exposing our vulnerability and allowing ourselves to meaningfully connect with others, and in so doing, healing our deepest wounds. —Celeste Wong
