The Year Between

  •   Alex Heller
  •   United States

Making her darkly funny assured feature debut, Chicago filmmaker Alex Heller writes, directs, and stars as a defiantly independent woman struggling to get her life back on track. Kicked out of college for bad behavior, cranky and acerbic Clemence returns to her suburban Chicagoland home where she learns she has bipolar disorder. Clashing with her loved ones and trying to hold down a job, Clemence strives to find a new equilibrium in life—with uneven results. Featuring memorable supporting performances from Steve Buscemi and J. Smith-Cameron (Succession) as Clemence’s parents, The Year Between deftly balances biting humor with the serious realities of mental illness to create a sharply comic and fiercely honest portrait of early adulthood.
