Family Day

Posted by

“Family Day” is a powerful short film about a mid-twenties woman (Kelly O’ Connell) who is finishing up her third stint in rehab at Greenbrier Rehab center in Dobbs Ferry, NY. In the final days of her three months stay, her mother and loving stepdad (Brenda and Richard) come to visit for Family Day. What ensues is unexpected and revealing. Kelly’s sobriety is tested in a myriad of ways by dealing with an avalanche of her mother’s past pains and fears. This looking glass view of sobriety and family dysfunction is compelling and relatable to all.

Directed by Harry O’Reilly (USA)
