HamptonsFilm is pleased to continue to curate the hit screening series NOW SHOWING, featuring acclaimed first-run, art house, independent, and world cinema. The only difference is that now screenings will take place in the privacy of your own home.

This week’s film is SAINT FRANCES, winner of the SXSW 2019 Narrative Feature Audience Award and a Special Jury Recognition for Breakthrough Voice for screenwriter and star Kelly O’Sullivan.

Kelly’s latest screenplay Mouse was selected for the 20th Annual HamptonsFilm Screenwriters Lab, which took place online this weekend, and she is also the 2020 recipient of support from the Melissa Mathison Fund. A full recap from this past weekend’s virtual Lab will be posted on Wednesday.

“It’s truly refreshing to watch a film where nobody has anything figured out, where life proceeds messily and imperfectly. SAINT FRANCES is unpredictable in a very human way.” —


Directed by Alex Thompson
Written by and starring Kelly O’Sullivan

(2019, USA, 101 minutes)

Flailing 34-year-old Bridget (Kelly O’Sullivan) finally catches a break when she meets a nice guy and lands a much-needed job nannying six-year-old Frances (played by a scene-stealing Ramona Edith-Williams). But an unwanted pregnancy introduces an unexpected complication. To make matters worse, she clashes with the obstinate Frances and struggles to navigate a growing tension between Frances’s moms. Amidst her tempestuous personal relationships, a reluctant friendship with Frances emerges, and Bridget contends with the inevitable joys and shit-shows of becoming a part of someone else’s family.

This week’s “screening” will support HamptonsFilmGuild Hall, and the distributor (Oscilloscope). Follow us @HamptonsFilm on social media for future releases!
