A Goth-Nun Family Dramedy. Really.
Young nun Colleen is avoiding all contact from her family. Returning to her childhood home in Asheville, North Carolina, she finds her old room exactly how she left it: painted black and covered in goth/metal posters.
Little Sister is one of those films that the folks at Cine-Rama felt they just instantly had to share with their audiences after seeing. And this weekend, you'll have multiple chances to see this unusually uplifting film.
It's weird and special and heartfelt in a way few films pull off and they feel honored to have the opportunity to work directly with Zach Clark, the talented filmmaker responsible for this gem, to bring a brief run of the movie to Chattanooga.
Get ready to love this one as much as they do and they think that you'll join them in agreement with Indiewire that Little Sister is the “Goth-Nun Family Dramedy You Didn't Know You Needed”.
In an era when nuns are on the decline, especially in the South, this movie takes a decidedly regional view on how the new generation of young Catholic women are viewing the concept of becoming a nun.
What makes the feel both challenging and intriguing is that it's hard to quantify exactly what genre it belongs in; it's to serious at time to be a comedy, yet often to laugh-out-loud funny to be drama. And the much-maligned phrase "dramedy" just doesn't do it justice.
Take a chance on this one, folks! You won't regret it.
