BAGPIPES by Rockaway local John F. McManus.
GOD’S CREATURES by Saela Davis & Anna Rose Holmer. 2022. 94 min.
On the rain-whipped coast of Ireland, a family drama swells. Saela Davis and Anna Rose Holmer’s sophomore feature is a cold and beguiling tale of a community’s collective dismissal of a woman’s sexual assault. The ever-enchanting Emily Watson broods as a mother torn between protecting her family and doing what’s right. New York premiere.
Post-screening Q&A with directors Saela Davis & Anna Rose Holmer.
