In Little Woods, N.D., two estranged sisters, Ollie (Tessa Thompson) and Deb (Lily James), are thrust back together because of an unexpected tragedy. With Deb’s unplanned pregnancy looming large and only one week left to pay their bills or lose their home, Ollie is faced with a crossroad: She can make a break out of her small town alone or return to a way of life she thought she had left behind. The debut feature from writer/director Nia DaCosta—which was called ‘Best U.S. Indie’ by the San Francisco Film Critics Circle—Little Woods is an intimately portrayed thriller that speaks to the complex and passionate bond of sisterhood in desperate times. Contains mature content.
