Journeyman revolves around one of the most masculine of sports, but here is a screenplay that challenges that masculinity. For the most part, Matty’s close-knit team of friends and aides are hard-hearted and steely, masking their feelings wherever possible, but at a point where these men could have furthered their facade of aloofness, Considine’s script promotes organic emotion, including an emotionally tender scene between Bryte and Matty. Much like TyrannosaurJourneyman is not a pleasurable watch, but as a quietly devastating and heartfelt approach to trauma and those affected by it, it’s a winner.
