Saint Frances

Saturday, September 21 at 9:00 pm

Screening Location: Tusten Theatre, 210 Bridge Street, Narrowsburg, NY 12764

After her decision to end an unwanted pregnancy, 34-year-old Bridget (Kelly O’Sullivan, who also wrote the script) reluctantly agrees to nanny the bright and rambunctious six-year-old Frances (newcomer Ramona Edith-Williams). With no time to recover, Bridget forges ahead with strength and sarcasm, forming an unexpected bond with the young girl and her two moms.

“Kelly O’Sullivan’s “Saint Frances” is exactly the kind of movie that patriarchal Hollywood has been conspiring to suppress all these years: one that takes a range of experiences — from menstruation to abortion to lesbian marriage — and confronts them head-on, not as scandalous, but as aspects of life that demand examination.” Peter DeBruge, Variety
