Saint Frances

A FILM BY: Alex Thompson
WRITTEN BY: Kelly O'Sullivan
STARRING: Kelly O'Sullivan, Ramona Edith-Williams, Jim True-Frost, Charin Alvarez

Flailing thirty-four-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.

"Both a beautifully specific character study and something that has resonance beyond the demographic of its cast." - Brian Tallerico,

"Will take you through an entire journey of emotion, it's so insightful and eloquent and respectful and painful and affirming." - Roxana Hadadi, Pajiba
