New York Premiere!
Director Zack Parker and cast members Alexia Rasmussen and Kristina Klebe in person!
When eight-months-pregnant single-mother Esther (Alexia Rasmussen) loses her child after an unseen attacker viciously assaults her, the solitary young woman joins a support group in an effort to deal with her depression. Another group member, Melanie (Alexa Havins), whose husband and son have been killed in a car accident, takes an interest in Esther for reasons unknown—but nothing is as it seems. As one revelation follows another, this genuinely twisted and perverse mind game escalates in a chain reaction of violence and revenge in which the motivations of its characters remain tantalizingly enigmatic. A truly disturbing indie set in the heart of darkness that is suburbia, this showcase for the singular sensibility of writer-director Zack Parker boasts terrific performances from Rasmussen, Havins, Kristina Klebe, and the ubiquitous Joe Swanberg. An IFC Midnight Release.
