May 2 - 8, 2014

Kristen Wiig stars in this romantic drama from director Liza Johnson (Return) that follows an introverted caretaker who becomes the butt of a cruel practical joke when her teenaged charge fabricates a series of love letters. With Guy Pearce, Nick Nolte, and Hailee Steinfeld.

Adapted from the Alice Munro story "Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage," this absorbing character study features Wiig in a dramatic role as the timid Johanna Parry, who is hired by elderly Mr. McCauley to watch over his granddaughter, Sabitha. A rebellious teen whose father is a hapless recovering addict, Sabitha lashes out at her new guardian with a mean-spirited prank: a series of false emails from her father that lead to a fake courtship. But this interference may actually provoke Johanna to indulge in the dreams long missing from her life.
