This looks interesting. I think Teller can be good in dramas (Whiplash) but he's not good in teen stuff

Out this weekend and currently at 100% RT. We are seeing a movie this weekend and this might be my vote. We already know the ending, but it's a story I would like to know more about.

Really good movie with a sad and powerful ending.

I kind of knew what forest fire fighters did, but this movie did a fairly well job of explaining what their role is and the politics behind it. Great performances all around and an easy movie to recommend.

Something that surprised me was this took place in AZ, no California. I assumed it would be largely forest fires, but the fire that claimed their lives was full of bushes/small trees, not a dense forest.

Be sure to read this after seeing the movie
