A short film I acted in, Matriarch, will have its premiere at the 2020 Woods Hole Film Festival, which will be a virtual event this year from July 25-August 1. I loved working on this film and am so happy to see it out in the world.
As Maureen Callahan lays on her death bed, her two adult daughters, Mary and Nancy, argue over who will inherit their mother’s fur coat. What could go wrong?
Matriarch is a dark comedy set in small town New England. Mary and Nancy struggle against each other, each of them trying to prove their love for their mother in their own way. A subtle comedy about stubborn women and power dynamics within families, Matriarch is a story about dealing with grief, pride, and loneliness: a coming-of-age tale for people who should have grown up a long time ago.
