Mountain Rest

Mountain Rest
Drama | 2018 | NR. 1hr 33min
CAST: Frances Conroy, Kate Lyn Sheil, Natalia Dyer DIRECTOR: Alex O. Eaton 2018 Tacoma Film Festival Official Selection

After sequestering herself to a small mountain town, an aging actress calls her estranged daughter home for reconciliation and one final celebration. 

"The oppressive specter of family haunts Mountain Rest. Frankie (Kate Lyn Sheil) and her daughter Clara (Natalia Dyer of Stranger Things) have been unexpectedly invited to a party thrown by Ethel (Frances Conroy), Frankie’s estranged mother. Cloistered in Ethel’s home in the remote South Carolina woods, Clara is dragged into the brittle, tense relationship between her mother and grandmother. At the same time, Ethel’s bohemian glamour and the wild landscape begin to exert a strange psychic influence on her. Alex O Eaton is a precise observer of family dynamics: how criticism can masquerade as praise; the way grandchildren and grandparents form their own bonds, separate from parents; how secrets can manifest themselves beyond words. Dyer, Sheil, and Conroy understand every nuance of Eaton’s screenplay, every modulation of voice, silence between sentences, and tentative gesture. And as the camera creeps towards and away from the characters, the audience can feel every embrace and rejection." - Andy Stark
