Saint Frances

  • Ace Hotel Chicago 311 North Morgan Street, Prairie Garden Roof Deck Chicago United States (map)

Season Opener: Chicago Exclusive Screening of Saint Frances!

Written by Chicago’s Kelly O’Sullivan, directed by Chicago’s Alex Thompson

“Every so often, SXSW scores a real coup, landing a world-premiere indie that’s stronger than any of the films that debuted in competition two months earlier at Sundance. A courageous act of sharing from an essential new voice, Kelly O’Sullivan’s “Saint Frances” is exactly the kind of movie that patriarchal Hollywood has been conspiring to suppress all these years: one that takes a range of experiences — from menstruation to abortion to lesbian marriage — and confronts them head-on, not as scandalous, but as aspects of life that demand examination.”-Variety
