This movie has been modified by the distributor for its original theatrical version. This critically acclaimed winner of the Robert Altman Award at the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards explores the unlikely friendship between two women living in the San Fernando Valley, Jane (Dree Hemingway in her first leading role) an aimless 21 year-old aspiring actress and Sadie (Besedka Johnson), an 85 year-old widow. While Jane spends her days getting high with her dysfunctional roommates, Sadie passes her time alone often at the local bingo parlor. After their worlds collide at a yard sale, a tenuous but tender relationship starts to emerge between the two as Jane protects a potentially volatile secret. Director Sean Baker captures the rhythms of everyday life with a rare authenticity in this provocative, unpredictable and surprisingly sweet story of human connection.
