Melanie is forced to make the toughest of choices as she struggles to support her mother on the path toward recovery and healing. A bittersweet story about coming of age in the shadow of mental illness.
A hidden gem!
This was easily one of the best indie films I've seen all year. It deals with mental illness in a very honest and unique way, and Lili Taylor gives a terrific tour-de-force performance as a single mother suffering from paranoid delusions. It's also incredibly well shot. Every camera angle is very clearly thought out, and kind of reminds me of M. Night Shyamalan at his peak. Do yourself a favor and check this out.
