Screener Squad: South Mountain

South Mountain Movie Review


Life hits Lila (Talia Balsam) hard. First, her kids leave for the summer. Then her husband, Edgar (Scott Cohen), leaves for another. Her world overturned, Lila tries to keep herself centered through the feelings of grief, anger, and a rather tasty idea of revenge. The film is a somber look at self-discovery in the aftermath of heartbreak while remaining audibly and visually beautiful. Listen to this review featuring Adrian, Bradly, Joshua, and London to find out what they thought of South Mountain.
