The movie, written and directed by Annie Howell and Lisa Robinson, stars Anna Margaret Hollyman as Sarah Sparks, a “freelance technologist” whose job requires her to ask people about their connection to technology and to have an insatiable curiosity about how things work. Obsessed with the inner workings of iMacs and old radios, Sarah is so interested in the electronic configuration of a pregnancy test that she hardly registers that it reads positive.
Her uncertainties about motherhood trigger an impulsive road-trip across the country to visit her father (Richard Hoag) and to find her long-estranged mother (Mary Beth Pell) living “off-the-grid.”
This movie (screened at South by Southwest 2011) of small, beautifully moving parts is “unmistakably human in its warmth” and a wonderfully comic coming-of-parenthood tale for the internet age.
Tickets may be purchased at the door for $5.00 per person. Members of the Film Society are admitted at no charge. For information about the June1-3 Film Festival,check our website at www.lighthousefilmfestival.org.
