How to Watch

Includes Introduction by Writer/Director Kate Tsang.

Sammy (Miya Cech) is grieving the death of her mother and wrestling with the turbulence of being a teenager. When she meets Marvelous Margot (Rhea Perlman), a surly magician, her life changes in ways she never imagined.

Rebellious and despairing, Sammy destroys one of the school’s toilets, and with the threat of a summer school for delinquents hanging over her, she serendipitously meets the Marvelous Margot, perhaps the most feisty magician you’ll ever meet. The two form an unlikely friendship and Sammy discovers magic, both real and fantastical. Kate Tsang’s debut is an endearing coming-of-age comedy that gleefully employs sleight of hand to reveal rays of light in the darkest moments. “A wholly sincere crowd-pleaser with bursts of inspired comedy.” --Nick Allen,
