Jan 04 - Jan 10
(Brian M. Cassidy & Melanie Shatzky, 2012, USA/Canada, Blu-ray, 74 min)
After years of incarceration, a quiet, lonely woman (Academy Award-winner Melissa Leo) is released from prison to start a new life in a small, rural town. But despite opportunities for warmth and connection, her years of “rehabilitation” have left her with little ability to create relationships and pursue happiness, finding her only solace in her connections with animals. What happens when a second chance isn’t enough?
“A legitimate discovery. Raw. Intimate.” –David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
"A small but striking independent feature."–Denis Lim, The New York Times
"As a 74-minute snapshot of an American at the low end of the struggling 99%, it speaks far more eloquently than poverty statistics." –David D'Arcy, Screen Daily
