Storyline

Creedmoria is a tale about growing up in Queens, New York, in the '80s-but at its core, it's about one teenage girl's hope. Set against the backdrop of the state's largest mental hospital, Creedmoor, we watch Candy try to survive high school, a psycho boyfriend, a domineering mother, a dickhead boss, one brother coping with a drug addiction and another struggling with his sexual identity-all while trying to fit in and stay as hopeful as she can. This heartwarming film is the story of how she breaks out. Written by Alicia Slimmer

Stays with you forever!
22 April 2018 | by annareillySee all my reviews

Creedmoria stays with you long after you've seen it, stirring emotions you didn't think you had. But somehow, this powerful coming-of-age story--set in Queens, New York, during the 1980s-manages to bathe all of its drama in belly laughs. And the whole cast is amazing. I absolutely LOVED THIS FILM!
