Kim So-yong 2016 United States 85min english

As played by Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s eldest grandchild, Riley Keough, Sarah’s searching blue eyes seem to peel the layers off her surroundings like an onion. At first, there are the mundanities of rearing a three-year-old and trying to reach her distant husband, their relationship mediated through bad Skype connections. But then her best friend, Mindy (Hunger Games alumna Jena Malone), comes to save her from her stoic desperation, and she finds more layers than she may be equipped to handle. As the two women wander around rodeos and fairs with Sarah’s strong-willed daughter, and play truth-telling drinking games, they tentatively discover a bond that not even a subsequent three-year estrangement and a soon-to-be wedding can sever. Writer-director So Yong Kim’s spare, improvisational script and naturalistic, unvarnished filmmaking keep the focus on the intense inner lives of Sarah and Mindy as they strive to figure out what it means to live with “no regrets.” – Michael Belcher
