March 27 - April 2, 2020

Shortly after getting an abortion, Bridget (writer/star Kelly O'Sullivan) finds herself stumbling into an nannying gig, and in charge of a precocious six-year-old named Frances (Ramona Edith Williams). Winner of the Audience Award at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival.

Writer/star Kelly O'Sullivan and director Alex Thompson will be in attendance on March 27 and March 28 at the 6:30 PM screenings. 

Flailing 34-year-old Bridget (Kelly O'Sullivan) finally catches a break when she meets a nice guy and lands a much-needed job nannying six-year-old Frances (played by a scene-stealing Ramona Edith-Williams). But an unwanted pregnancy introduces an unexpected complication. To make matters worse, she clashes with the obstinate Frances and struggles to navigate a growing tension between Frances's moms. Amidst her tempestuous personal relationships, 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.

"A movie that really snuck up on me and walloped me emotionally in the final scenes in ways I wasn't expecting."—Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
