About the Film:

Flailing thirty-four-year-old Bridget (Kelly O’Sullivan) finally catches a break when she meets a nice guy and lands a much-needed job nannying six-year-old Frances (played by a scene-stealing Ramona Edith-Williams). But an unwanted pregnancy introduces an unexpected complication. To make matters worse, she clashes with the obstinate Frances and struggles to navigate a growing tension between Frances’s moms. Amidst her tempestuous personal relationships, a reluctant friendship with Frances emerges, and Bridget contends with the inevitable joys and shit-shows of becoming a part of someone else’s family


Press

99% Fresh Rating on Rotten Tomatoes

"By the end, the authenticity of their bond feels so well-earned that you might not mind watching another movie about them growing up with each other." - Washington Post

"With a warm heart and a nonjudgmental mind, "Saint Frances" weaves abortion, same-sex parenting and postpartum depression into a narrative bursting with positivity and acceptance." - New York Times

"O'Sullivan and her creation are riveting, and when the film comes to an emotional end that hinges on all its early strengths, the result is satisfying and hard-won, a coming-of-age story" - indieWire


Extraordinary foreign films, must-see American indies, and groundbreaking documentaries from around the world, screening weekly at MSP Film Society.
