16-year-old STEPHANIE DALEY (Amber Tamblyn)
is hospitalized unexpectedly during a school fieldtrip
while, in a nearby public restroom, a dead newborn is
discovered. Faced with charges of murder, Stephanie claims
she never knew she was pregnant and that the child was
stillborn. Forensic psychologist Lydie Crane (Tilda Swinton)
is hired to determine the truth behind Stephanie’s
continuing state of denial. Coincidentally, Lydie is herself
pregnant and struggles with an impending fear that her
marriage and her pregnancy is in jeopardy. Her intuition
intensifies with each session with Stephanie and she soon
believes that unraveling the teenager’s mystery is somehow
crucial to her own fate.
Featuring gripping performances by Tilda Swinton and Academy
Award-winner Timothy Hutton, STEPHANIE DALEY is anchored by
a brave powerhouse performance by Amber Tamblyn.
Writer/director Hilary's Brougher's evocative film, winner
of Best Screenplay at Sundance Film Festival, weaves two
parallel journeys into a sublime masterpiece about the
absolute nature of truth.
