Never Steady, Never Still

A mother dealing with early onset Parkinson's and her son struggling to survive the toxic masculinity that permeates his oil field workplace must contend with both loneliness and grief in the aftermath of a family tragedy in this affecting rural Canadian drama. Featuring a tour de force performance from Shirley Henderson that, if there's any justice in the world, will be getting recognition this awards season, Never Steady, Never Still is a gorgeously rendered depiction of emotional isolation.
