Alma

Alma Thrope's bizarre views on sexuality, motherhood and mail-order sweepstakes make her a living, breathing shrine to Southern Gothic. In this intimate and darkly humorous film, director Ruth Leithman (Lipstick & Dynamite, Wildwood N.J.) follows Alma's daughter Margie on her journey with a mentally ill mother and an abusive, alcoholic father. Framed by accusations of incest, Alma is an unflinching examination of family secrets and pain tangled up in love.
