“One of the greatest documentaries I’ve ever seen.”—Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine

Sandusky, Ohio, native Brandy Burre had a recurring role on HBO’s The Wire when she gave up her career to start a family. When she decided to reclaim her life as an actor, the domestic world she’s carefully created crumbles around her. This compelling-yet-unnerving documentary begins to feels like an intimate melodrama as it never becomes clear whether Burre is being herself or playing her next role. (86 mins., DCP)
