The World Premiere of the film opened the festival on Thursday, October 15, and due to an overwhelming demand from festival goers to see the film the additional screening has been added to the schedule.
Directed by Julia Hart and written by Hart and Academy Award nominee Jordan Horowitz, the 1970s set crime drama follows suburban housewife Jean (Rachel rosnahan) who lives a seemingly easy life, supported by husband Eddie’s (Bill Heck) career as a thief.
But when Eddie betrays his partners, Jean and her baby are forced to go on the run, and Eddie’s old friend Cal (Arinzé Kene) is tasked with the job of keeping them safe. After Cal mysteriously disappears, Jean befriends Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake), and the two women set out on a perilous journey into the heart of Eddie’s criminal underworld.
A decidedly female take on crime dramas of the 1970s, the film is a tale of love, betrayal, motherhood, family and what it takes to claim your life as your own.
