JANET PLANET

Watch Trailer Director: Annie Baker
Cast: Julianne Nicholson, Zoe Ziegler, Elias Koteas, Sophie Okonedo, Will Patton

It’s the summer of 1991, and Janet (Julianne Nicholson), an aging down-to-earth acupuncturist, has retreated to rural Massachusetts to spend some quality time with her young daughter Lacy (Zoe Zeigler). The girl is at the age where being sociable is a real challenge, and Janet tries to gently sever the proverbial “apron strings” by inviting three people over to her home for a visit: her boyfriend, a close female companion, and the leader of a local theater troupe. Lacy, however, is not exactly ready to let go of her dependence on her mother and warily struggles to embrace the demands of young adulthood.

From A24 Studios, Janet Planet has been an immediate hit with critics who have praised the realism and heartfelt quality of the relationship between a mother and her daughter at emotionally impactful stages of life. Written and directed by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker, the film stars a strong cast that includes Julianne Nicholson, Zoe Ziegler, Elias Koteas, Sophie Okonedo, and Will Patton.
