(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

In RAYMOND & RAY, the title characters (played by Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke) are two very different half-brothers on a road trip to their father's funeral. For reasons never entirely explained the father has left instructions that not only should they attend the funeral, but that they must dig the grave and bury him themselves. (He has also left other odd instructions, also never explained other than by people saying he was strange.) The brothers use the time to vent their anger at each other and at their father, and of course family secrets are also discussed and revealed, as is predictable in this sort of film.

Released on streaming 21 October 2022. Rating: high +1 (-4 to +4) or 6/10
