A BANQUET

SUMMARY

Widowed mother Holly (Sienna Guillory) is radically tested when her teenage daughter Betsey (Jessica Alexander) experiences a profound enlightenment and insists that her body is no longer her own, but in service to a higher power. Bound to her newfound faith, Betsey refuses to eat but loses no weight. In an agonizing dilemma, torn between love and fear, Holly is forced to confront the boundaries of her own beliefs.

REVIEW

“Ruth Paxton’s feature debut favors a slow simmering atmosphere in a psychodrama that sees a family in deterioration. One that can test the audience’s patience as much as it does its lead characters.”
