Recently released from prison, Francine (Academy Award winner Melissa Leo) reacts to freedom as another
kind of confinement. Leo’s extraordinarily realistic portrayal of a woman at the edge of reason obliterates distinctions between performance art and acting, investing the film with a rare intensity. The filmmaking
team of Brian M. Cassidy and Melanie Shatzky, known for their documentaries The Patron Saints (2011) and God Provides (2007), have created a searing, naturalistic portrait of a lost soul.
Organized by Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, Department of Film.
