Don't Mind Me Now said:
The film is primarily a character study on Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck's character) and his nephew Patrick. The only notable interaction between two women is between Sandy, one of Patrick's girlfriends, and Jill, her mother, who talk to each other about Lee and his inability to make small talk. Though the conversation does not pass the test either way, it is notably interrupted by Patrick.
