Saint Frances

SUPPORT
Arizona

Thirty-four-year-old Bridget (Kelly O’Sullivan, who also penned the script) is a college dropout turned server, who is far more comfortable relaying every detail of her recent abortion than she is talking about her feelings.
Uncomfortable around kids, unable to filter her thoughts, and preoccupied with her own problems, she doesn’t exactly scream “nanny material.” Enter the rowdy yet irresistible Frances (captivating newcomer Ramona Edith-Williams), a six year-old from an upscale Chicago neighborhood that Bridget is tasked with babysitting for the summer. When Bridget eventually wins the young girl over, they form a strong bond. But becoming a part of someone’s family is messy, and tensions rise as Bridget becomes unexpectedly entangled in the lives of Frances and her two moms. Funny, moving and wincingly real, Saint Frances is both a heartening story of an unlikely friendship and an illuminating look into girlhood, womanhood, and motherhood. As reproductive health continues to be under attack, it’s a refreshing and important reminder of the human faces and stories behind the issue. (Dir. by Alex Thompson, 2019, USA, 106 mins., Not Rated)
