Twitter Capsule: This is red meat, homegrown myth. This is sometimes feeling like a fatherless child. The past lingers but this is a new day.

VOR:   Beyond stylistic and storytelling prowess, a remarkable take on a new American generation claiming old stories as their own without omitting their debts. Robust and amazingly timely.
