ACTRESS
This is what happens when we break the rules. Once a rising star on HBO’s THE WIRE, Brandy gave up her acting career to start a family.  When her marriage begins to fall apart she decides to reclaim her life as an actor while the domestic world she’s carefully created crumbles around her.  Using elements of staged melodrama and cinema verité, ACTRESS is a beautifully intimate portrait of a performer coming face to face with life's difficult compromises.  It’s a film about starring in the movie of your life. - CM
