Patricia Rozema’s MOUTHPIECE Opens in NY & LA

Opens June 7th in LA

SYNOPSIS:

Following the sudden death of her mother, Elaine (Maev Beaty) she finds herself in crisis, unable to think straight with a debate raging inside her head. This movie makes that invisible conflict visible: Cassandra (Amy Nostbakken & Norah Sadava) battles it out while figuring out what to say at her mother’s funeral.

What unfolds is a wild careening through grief, anger, sex and self-sabotage in an exploration of the messy lives of women from both generations. Raucous jokes, musical numbers and heart breaking memories add up to a deeply moving and political portrait of a mother and a daughter as seen through the eyes of one conflicted young woman.

The film stars Amy Nostbakken, Norah Sadava and Maev Beaty. Screenplay by Emmy-winning, esteemed writer, producer, director Patricia Rozema and Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava. It is loosely adapted from the play by Nostbakken and Sadava. Rozema (Into the Forest, Mansfield Park, Grey Gardens (script), I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing) also directs. The film is produced by Patricia Rozema through her company Crucial Things and First Generation Films’ Christina Piovesan and Jennifer Shin.

The film open May 31st in NY & June 7th in LA.
