I was lucky enough to see this short film on IFC and was so impressed by the wonderful acting in it. Sarah Adler was very impressive, I hope to see more of her in the near future! The whole cast was fantastic in fact, the film was shot so well too. Bravo!

This short film was the first in an IFC film collection and is a strong
choice to start off two hours of viewing.
The story of "Upheaval" - that of a misunderstanding by an overbearing and irrational woman who accuses her nanny of stealing some jewelry - is simple and compact, reflecting its origins as a play by Anton Chekov.
Frances McDormand captures the spirit of a loathsome spoiled rich woman who is unbearable to be around and difficult to manage.
While there aren't many suspects in this whodunit, one can consider the motivation of the criminal as an examination of character. Why would anyone want to create conflict in a household with a woman that volatile?
