Colby Cutler (Brendan Gleeson) rules his family with an iron fist, making sure that they’re all part of his criminal activities, but also provided for. But his son Chad (Michael Fassbender) has had enough of their life, of getting into trouble. He wants to make sure that his children are settled – literally it means leaving the collection of trailers that is their family’s home. But Colby won’t just let him go without a fight.
Throughout the film I was wondering whether the Cutlers are supposed to be Romani – because then it would have been one of the most racist films I’ve ever seen. It turns out that they’re actually Irish Travellers, meaning that the film isn’t racist, just stereotypical as fuck and pretty aggravating.
