“The Best Movies of 2018” (Richard Brody, The New Yorker). “Top 10 Films of 2018” (Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com). Independent Spirit Award nominee for Best Supporting Female (Tyne Daly) and the John Cassavetes Award. Inspired by and filmed at TSL, from director Patrick Wang (In the Family, The Grief of Others).
Told in two films. In part one, after 40 years of running their community arts center, The Bread Factory, Dorothea (Tyne Daly) and Greta (Elizabeth Henry) are suddenly fighting for survival when a celebrity couple – performance artists from China – come to Checkford and build an enormous complex down the street catapulting big changes in their small town.
In part two, Dorothea and Greta rehearse the Greek play, Hecuba. But the real theatrics are outside the theater where the town has been invaded by bizarre tourists and mysterious tech start-up workers. There is a new normal in Checkford, if it is even really Checkford any longer. 2018.
Part One 2h2m / Part Two 2h.
