The Ballad of Jack and Rose

Rebecca Miller (director of Personal Velocity and daughter of Arthur Miller) talked hubby Daniel Day-Lewis into starring in this rather personal drama. Day-Lewis plays Jack, father to Rose (young Camilla Belle). In the mid-'80s, this duo live an off-the-grid lifestyle on an abandoned hippie commune on an island off the East Coast. Dying of a heart condition, Jack decides its time to introduce his daughter to the world at large. Rather impulsively, he invites his sometimes girlfriend (Catherine Keener) and her two sons to move in. Unaccustomed to sharing her father's affections, the emotionally incestuous Rose does not take well to this turn of events. The film is structurally and philosophically uneven, but benefits from some fine performances. 112 minutes R.
