To Leslie

Leslie (Andrea Riseborough) is a West Texas single mother struggling to provide for her son (Owen Teague) when she wins the lottery and a chance at a good life. But a few short years later the money is gone and Leslie is on her own, living hard and fast at the bottom of a bottle as she runs from the world of heartbreak she left behind. With her charm running out and with nowhere to go, Leslie is forced to return home to her former friends Nancy and Dutch (Allison Janney, Stephen Root). Unwelcome and unwanted by those she wronged, it’s a lonely motel clerk named Sweeney (Marc Maron) who takes a chance when no one else will. With his support, Leslie comes face to face with the consequences of her actions, a life of regret, and a second chance to make a good life for her and her son.

Reviews.

“A complex portrait of the ways in which trauma and addiction haunt a working-class white family in the South…” New York Times

“Mesmerizing. A gritty, unflinching and genuinely heartfelt story. One of the most powerful and inspirational movies since The Way Back. Andrea Riseborough gives a raw, tour de force performance….” Avi Offer

“Unglamorous and unflinching, lilting from dive bars to motels across an errant desert wind. So too is Riseboroughs performance as Leslie… The Wrap
