Description

"[Kelly] O'Sullivan's screenplay, much like her performance, is sweet, without ever turning sickly. Alex Thompson's direction, in turn, carefully matches her tone." —The Independent

"Saint Frances is smart and orignal and anti-sensationalist. It is also a very good film, which speaks to you but never shouts." —BBC.com

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 (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' moms. Amidst her tempestuous personal relationships, a reluctant friendship with Frances emerges, and Bridget contends with the inevitable joys and complications of becoming a part of someone else's family.
