"Kelly O'Sullivan writes and stars in the small masterpiece that's both thought-provoking and wildly entertaining." Chicago Sun-Times
Toronto Inside Out LGBT Film Festival
At the start of the summer, Bridget (Kelly O’Sullivan) has an abortion just as she lands a much-needed job in an affluent Chicago suburb - nannying six-year old Frances (played by the scene-stealing Ramona Edith-Williams). With no time to recover, she clashes with the obstinate Frances and struggles to navigate a growing tension between Frances’ moms. As her personal relationships suffer, a reluctant friendship with Frances emerges, and Bridget contends with the inevitable joys and shit-shows of becoming a part of someone else’s family. O’Sullivan (who also wrote the screenplay) gives a wonderful performance which, like the film itself, displays a pitch perfect balance between comedy and drama.
