10,000 Saints Trailer


Jude gets the surprise of his life when his biological father Les shows up at his adoptive mother's house in Vermont, ready to take him to Manhattan and become a real father to him.

Jude has more reason than most to hate the way his father makes money; it's not long since the death of his friend Teddy, who overdosed after a night out; and it's made even worse now that Les is in a relationship with Eliza's rich English mother Di.

Girl Most Likely Trailer


Imogene cannot seem to move on from her unsuccessful career as a playwright in New York and her destroyed relationship with a former boyfriend. Dreaming of the past and what could've been, she goes into meltdown and wakes up in the bed of a psychiatric unit with a doctor informing her that she must either stay in hospital or be cared for by a close relative. She is ultimately forced to go back to her hometown in New Jersey to be with her wayward mother who has never had the ability to take care of her properly as a child let alone as an adult.
