Storyline

Four estranged sisters reunite after their mother's alleged suicide. Mary Baxter (Weaver and Smart, at different ages) led an enviable life, traveling the world as a young dancer.She was blessed with four daughters from four different fathers, each as unique as the cities they are named after: Carolina (Katic), Austin (Weixler), Dallas (Trachtenberg) and Baltimore (Bellisario). After Mary's death, her daughters reunite in their New England family home to mourn. As the local police investigate the circumstances of Mary's death, old animosities among the sisters resurface, and a dark secret threatens to tear the family apart. Faced with a horrifying truth, the estranged sisters must choose to either turn their backs on the only family they have known, or risk everything to protect one another. Written by AnonymousB

SMART WOMEN. Smart women who are not defined by a male character. All of them- so well written and fleshed out. Lovely acting all around. Was enamored with Troyan Bellisario- whom I had never seen. Deftly directed with nuance and care. At times funny and others, gut-wrenching. But never fell into the stereotypical UBER-FEELY trap that many female driven fare can. Really just a total GEM of a film. Was at a screening where the audience was both laughing and crying, a successful story in my book. Was also wonderful to see Jackie Weaver in a lovely turn as their flawed but original matriarch.

BRAVO LIFETIME for backing SMART, FEMALE DRIVEN FARE!!
