Discussion to follow with director James Lapine
Dir. James Lapine l Drama | U.S.A. | 2016 | 104 min.
Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning director/writer James Lapine (Into the Woods, Six by Sondheim) brings out incredible performances from a powerhouse cast including Viola Davis and Tony Shalhoub. A young single mother of two suddenly finds herself embroiled in a custody battle when her son’s teacher reports a suspicious injury. As the web of judges and attorneys expands, a new layer of depth exposes broken systems and haunting personal memories. This searing drama dances between the individuals and the institutions we rely on to do the right thing.
“What a welcome surprise ... a layered and delicately wrought entertainment.” – Nigel M. Smith, The Guardian
