A double prize winner at the Sundance Film Festival, and numerous awards internationally, Ballast is one of the most acclaimed American independent films of recent years, a stunning evocative story of personal catastrophe and communal redemption.

In the cold winter light of the Mississippi Delta, 3 lonely people stumble under the weight of a shared tragedy, Lawrence is paralyzed with grief after the loss of his twin brother, 12yr old James drifts into the perilous orbit of local teenagers, while his single mother, Marlee is too exhausted from her menial job to interpret the clues.

When sudden violence forces mother and son to leave their home in the middle of the night, they desperately flee to Lawrence‘s property. Though this provides a safe harbor, it quickly rekindles the fury of a bitter, longstanding conflict between them.

An unmissable film!!
