Breaking Glass Pictures will release the powerful SXSW drama South Mountain in theaters in the Spring, opening in New York at Cinema Village on April 3.
Beautifully filmed by multi-award-winning writer-director Hilary Brougher (STEPHANIE DALEY), South Mountain stars festival darling Talia Balsam (MAD MEN, HBO’s DIVORCE) as Lila who is left to her own devices when her kids leave for the summer and her husband leaves for good.
The film also stars Scott Cohen (THE AMERICANS, GILMORE GIRLS), Talia Balsam, Andrus Nichols, Guthrie Mass, Nadia Zoe, Isis Masoud, Macaulee Rusnak Cassaday, Midori Francis and Michael Oberholtzer.
As family ties dissolve, a woman must find a way to heal in the absorbing, emotionally layered new drama. 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) leaves her for another woman with whom he has already fathered a child, Lila plunges 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.
