Their other three titles – Whiplash, Love is Strange, and Land Ho! – were all released in the US last year.

The year is 1978. Cam Stuart, black sheep of an old New England family, is fresh off a manic-depressive breakdown. His wife, Maggie, has left him, taking their two young girls. Cam misses his family terribly; and when Maggie goes to New York City to get her MBA, she asks Cam to move in and take care of their daughters. Cam insists that Maggie return to help him every weekend, and eventually the four of them figure out a new and unconventional way to be a family.
