If you’ve ever read the nutrition facts panel on a package of pasta, understanding what a portion means can be kind of tricky.

He is born with a silver spoon in his mouth, with brightness all around him. Everything we dream of is there for him; great material wealth, good health, and prestige, power and status in his society.

It’s set in Prescott, Arizona, where Eric (Josh Brolin) is trying to get his firefighting team certified as hotshots, qualified to take on the big wildfires. Supported by fire chief Duane (Jeff Bridges), he builds a crew that includes loyal captain Jesse (James Badge Dale) and talented womaniser Mac (Taylor Kitsch), and he gives a second chance to Brendan (Miles Teller), a recovering addict who reminds Eric of himself. Then when the crew is certified as the Granite Mountain Hotshots, the pressures of work strain their relationships with their wives and children.
