Sadie

Now through 10/25/2018 | Northwest Film Forum

Film & Media Arts Capitol Hill/Central District

Sadie – an observant and incredibly clever young teenager – desperately misses her father, who is enlisted in the military and just informed her that he will be staying longer for another tour. Her mother, Rae (Melanie Lynskey), has been trying to navigate being a good parent while battling her own loneliness and non-existent marriage. When Cyrus, a well-intentioned man with a painkiller addiction, moves into the neighborhood, he and Rae begin seeing one another, crushing Sadie’s idea of her family reuniting again. Insistent that her father will come back and their lives will be better with him in it, Sadie carefully plots to break up the new relationship, stubbornly refusing to see anyone’s side but her own.
