Storyline

Frances Ferguson, the eponymous character at the center of Bob Byington's new film, is discontent. Like a lot of us, she does a bit of "acting out" and pays the price -an arrest, a trial, incarceration. And then a new identity, one that's not terribly comfortable. Nick Offerman narrates this deviant comedy, based on actual events. Written by AnonymusB

I got to watch this movie last year in Italy at a small film festival in Torino. It's nice to see Amazon supporting this kind of work. I think this kind of movie needs to be seen with an audience, but still held up watching it the second time from home. Nick Offerman tends to make me laugh.
