Growing up in small-town Oklahoma in the early 1960s is tough for reclusive teen Iris (Kara Hayward). Her mother (Jordan Spiro) is a demanding alcoholic, while her father (Shea Whigham) is timid and evasive. She suffers from an embarrassing bladder condition and faces daily bullying at school. When hip new girl in town Maggie (Liana Liberto) recognises untapped potential in Iris, the pair of outsiders bond. Yet Maggie holds secrets that will have alarming consequences for the community if exposed. Martha Stephens’ elegant period piece is a touching, aesthetically striking coming-of-age tale infused with righteous feminist purpose. MH

There will be a post-screening Q&A with director Martha Stephens.
