About the event
Alice Englert makes her writing-directing feature debut with this dark comedy that was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival, starring alongside Jennifer Connelly and Ben Whishaw. Lucy (Connelly), a former child actress, seeks enlightenment at a retreat led by spiritual leader Elon (Whishaw) while she also navigates the close yet turbulent relationship with her stunt performer daughter, Dylan (Englert). "Bad Behavior is a valentine to adults who are still coming-of-age. Especially mothers and daughters. This story takes place in the space where tragedy is still taking its time to turn into comedy, where some wounds still feel fresh and others that might have healed have been continually picked open. My intention is to tell a story about the stories we tell, the egos that love them, the worlds that they build, the escapes we attempt, the futility of thinking and the thrill of it. This story is not a verdict on spirituality, but a contemporary, female-lead adventure into it." Alice Englert
