Part of Film series BAMcinemaFest 2019
Directed by Hilary Brougher | 2019

With Talia Balsam, Scott Cohen, Macaulee Cassaday

As family ties come loose, a woman must find a way to heal in the absorbing, emotionally layered new drama from Hilary Brougher. Lila (Talia Balsam) is an artist and mother living in the Catskills who has selflessly devoted herself to everyone around her, often at the expense of her own happiness. When her husband (Scott Cohen) announces he is leaving her for another woman with whom has already fathered a child, Lila finds herself plunged into an existential crisis that unfolds with simmering tension and a series of unexpected twists. Built around an extraordinary performance from Talia Balsam—at once tightly wound and achingly vulnerable—South Mountain is a fearlessly honest portrait of a woman coming apart in order to become whole.
