A Special Limited Season!

Written and directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Alone on a seaside vacation, Leda becomes consumed with a young mother and daughter as she watches them on the beach. Unnerved by their compelling relationship, (and their raucous and menacing extended family), Leda is overwhelmed by her own memories of the terror, confusion and intensity of early motherhood. An impulsive act shocks Leda into the strange and ominous world of her own mind, where she is forced to face the unconventional choices she made as a young mother and their consequences.

“Gyllenhaal… makes an impressive debut as both writer and director.”- Financial Times

“Its strong cast and the story’s granular psychological texture will make it a must-see, while putting Gyllenhaal on the map as a neophyte writer-director already graced with maturity and restraint.” – Hollywood Reporter

“Buckley is terrific, her performance meshing so perfectly with Colman’s that it’s easy to see the older woman within the younger one, and vice-versa.” – Time Magazine

“Through it all, Gyllenhaal assumes an unfussy, practically invisible non-style that conveys the essential while privileging the performances.” – Variety

“Maggie Gyllenhaal puts forth something profound, specific, and even bone-deep about womanhood, motherhood, and all the unspoken horrors and repressed regrets that surround these identities.” – The Playlist
