Movie Info

This drama set in New England centers on the coming-out tale of a young woman and her relationship with her Boston family. Angela Redman plays Casey, a Massachusetts native who goes against the grain of an expected career path to be a commercial fisherman. Her mother (Annette Miller) is a guilt-tripping, old-fashioned matron who refuses to let Casey's longtime lover Alex (Nina Landey) into her house. Casey is fixated on her parents' acceptance of both Alex and her lifestyle, but she does not know that Alex is already familiar with her family, having treated Casey's younger brother for drug use. As Casey tries harder for acceptance, remnants of the past pop up to surprise the New England brood. Lysa Apostle co-stars as a brassy, flashy friend of Casey's. The film was transferred from Super 16 to 35 mm stock that complements its seaside setting.more
