Making a strong feature debut after shorts such as the Oscar-nominated Marguerite, actor turned filmmaker Marianne Farley impresses with this tension-filled drama about a mother who takes extreme measures to ensure a future for her family. Céline Bonnier anchors the film with her performance as Annie, whose efforts on behalf of her teenage daughter Sarah (Zeneb Blanchet) and son Félix (Elliott Plamondon) run into serious complications when their car breaks down near the upstate New York town of the title. Why Annie and her children left Montreal in such a hurry is gradually revealed through the interactions with locals like Paul (Rick Roberts), a mechanic who has his own reasons to keep to himself. Along with the surfacing of difficult truths come hard choices for Annie, prompting viewers of Farley’s compelling drama to consider how they might act in the same situation.
