Drama in which a dealer in outsider art threatens the equilibrium of her middle-class in-laws in North Carolina. Madeline (Embeth Davidtz) is an art gallery owner from Chicago. She is married to George (Alessandro Nivola), a near-perfect Southern beau. When Madeline needs to close a deal with a reclusive North Carolina artist, George introduces her to his family: prickly mother Peg (Celia Weston), taciturn father Eugene (Scott Wilson), cranky brother Johnny (Benjamin McKenzie), and Johnny's pregnant, childlike wife Ashley (Amy Adams), who is awe-struck by her glamorous sister-in-law. Madeline's presence exposes the fragile family dynamics as hidden resentments and anxieties surface.
