Storyline

'Molly's Theory of Relativity' depicts a day in the life of a beautiful twenty eight year old astronomer poised to make the first reckless decision of her life. Her story takes place on Halloween. Aiding her on her day of reckoning are her husband, her father-in-law, three deceased relatives, a precocious, trick-or-treating nine year old girl, her grandfather from Minot, North Dakota, and an eight year old neighbor who may or may not be imaginary. 'Molly's Theory of Relativity' is about the economy, how we value and measure the pride we take in what we choose to do for a living, the unbreakable bonds of family, and the notion that death is merely a relative thing.

Superb storytelling & a great cast
21 April 2014 | by stacy-ringSee all my reviews

Reed Birney was new to me until I attended a preview of the new Broadway show "Casa Valentina" last week. Now I want to see everything this extraordinary actor has ever done. I started with a film I'd never heard of, "Molly's Theory of Relativity." Not only did Reed blow me away again, the entire cast was superb. This guy can do anything. He had me in tears playing a father, somewhat estranged from his son and daughter-in-law. Reed, and another Broadway veteran, Tony winner Cady Huffman, were the moral centers of this wonderful movie. I have a grown son and daughter and this magical movie rang true with so many life lessons about family. The writer of this movie has an amazing ear when it comes to dialog. I highly recommend "Molly's Theory of Relativity" to anyone who likes to be thrilled by the discovery of so many talented artists, all at once.
