Post-film Q&A w/ director Megan Griffiths and producer Lacey Leavitt on Wednesday, October 17th at 7pm
SADIE is the story of a 13-year-old girl who lives at Shady Plains Trailer Park with her mother while her father serves repeated tours in the military. Her dad has broken many promises that he will return, but Sadie (Sophia Mitri Schloss) idolizes him and believes in his cause, so she waits, preserving his place on the home-front. Less patient is her mom, Rae (Melanie Lynskey), who stopped receiving letters or calls from her husband years ago. She has been half-heartedly dating the counselor from Sadie’s school, Bradley (Tony Hale,) but it isn’t until a mysterious newcomer moves in next door that she truly considers moving on.

“You live among these characters, aching for them.” – Melanie McFarland, Seattle Times
“Equal parts coming-of-age story and slow-burn thriller, writer-director Megan Griffiths’ quietly absorbing and methodically disquieting drama is a genuine rarity” – Joe Leydon, Variety
