A Home at the End of the World


the story

Bobby (Colin Farrell), a rough teenager, lives in Cleveland in a family burdened by tragedy. After he meets Jonathan (Dallas Roberts), a gay teen repressed by his mother (Sissy Spacek), the two boys become best friends. When Bobby later reunites with Jonathan in New York as a young man, Bobby finds him living with a laid-back woman named Clare (Robin Wright Penn), and the three friends plan to form their own family -- until Bobby and Clare's budding romance gets in the way.
