Having as of late graduated school, Dora (newcomer Eden Brolin, conveying an influencing turn) gets herself dispatched to her rural New Jersey home when she’d much rather be heading out with a companion to Brazil. Forced by her single parent (Christina Rouner) to examine for her LSAT, she escapes by volunteering to help her Great-Aunt Vera (Diane Ladd) after the elderly lady breaks her foot.
Making a trip to Vera’s home in upstate New York cinematographer Alex Rappoport catches the frigid settings in all their distressing excellence the young lady is not warmly invited but rather is met with haughtiness and mocking.
“Here’s to your superbly futile degrees,” Vera offers as a toast.
Despite the fact that the relationship demonstrates as frosty as the scene, Dora kindly takes care of Vera’s essential needs, including getting suppositories at a neighborhood drug store.
