Directed by Deb Shoval
Lola Kirke (MISTRESS AMERICA, MOZART IN THE JUNGLE) is a stand-out as Joey, a recent high school grad faced with a dead-end future in her small town in rural Pennsylvania. A chance visit to an Army recruiting center seems to offer a solution until fate in the personage of Rayna (Breeda Wool), a hard-drinking, leggy blonde in Daisy Dukes, strolls into her life and just as quickly steals her heart. As the romance deepens, Joey ignores a host of ticking time bombs – Rayna’s increasingly unstable behavior, the constant threat that Rayna’s violent husband, a long-haul trucker who neglects her, will discover their affair, and most ominously, Joey’s quickly approaching enlistment date. Hailed as “deeply affecting” by VARIETY, Deb Shoval’s feature debut expands on her 2010 short, delivering a passionate lesbian love story.
