    A rural group home for pregnant teen-agers is the setting for this intimately detailed, sharply observed modernist melodrama, directed by Nathan Silver. The director’s mother, Cindy Silver, plays Carla Gottlieb, the residence’s founder and leader. Carla—herself a onetime unwed mother—hosts five girls at a time; in quiet but intense confessional scenes of formal sharing or offhand chat, they discuss their difficult situations. The troubles ramp up with the arrival of Carla’s grown nephew, Robbie (David Dahlbom), newly separated from his wife, who volunteers for a two-week stint as a handyman. Read More »
