Two Gates of Sleep (2010)

Film details


In a remote shack on the Louisiana-Mississippi border, two young men prepare in silence for a hunting trip. It is gradually revealed that they are brothers who are fiercely devoted to their ailing mother. The family suffers little intrusion from the outside world, and that seems to suit them just fine. Eventually they do leave the security of their home, as the two sons accompany their mother on her final journey.
