Call Jane directed by Phyllis Nagy to close 48th Seattle International Film Festival
Call Jane directed by Phyllis Nagy

The 48th Annual Seattle International Film Festival will close on Sunday, April 24 with Phyllis Nagy’s Call Jane.

Set in Chicago, 1968, as a city and nation are poised on the brink of violent political upheaval, suburban housewife Joy (Elizabeth Banks) learns her pregnancy could lead to a life threatening condition. Her journey to find a solution to an impossible situation leads her to the “Janes”, a clandestine organization of women de facto led by Virginia (Sigourney Weaver), who provide Joy with a safer alternative, and in the process change her life.

“Wrapping up the 2022 Seattle International Film Festival with Phyllis Nagy’s Call Jane marks the perfect bookend to our journey through film,” said SIFF’s Artistic Director Beth Barrett, “Echoing themes of empowerment, freedom of choice, and the changing world stage that we have spent the last 11 days talking about, the film stands as a rallying cry that one person can make a difference in the world.”
