by Sean Durkin. 2020. 107 min.
The pandemic took a toll on many great films that were slated for release over the last couple of years — The Nest is one of them. Sean Durkin’s second feature is a sharp family drama about a crumbling marriage and the incessant desire for more, even when there is plenty. The Nest features tremendous performances from Jude Law, Carrie Coons, and Rockaway's own, Oona Roche.
Stick around for a post-screening discussion with Oona Roche.
This is an outdoor screening, so bundle up! La Cevicheria will be serving hot chowder.
