Cloves of garlic. A Wiccan bible. Lipstick. What do these objects have in common? We’ll have to check out “Babysitter” at SXSW to find out.

The film’s synopsis reads: “Ray Longway (Max Burkholder), a moody teenager, is a pawn in his parents’ bitter divorce. His mother, a struggling actress who married rich, has grown accustomed to their cushy L.A. lifestyle but now, this lifestyle is threatened and depends solely on Ray’s custody decision. The family hires a Wiccan-practicing babysitter, Anjelika (Daniele Watts), who quickly fills the voids in everyones’ lives. After sharing a joint one night, Ray and Anjelika form a deep bond that unfolds into something strange and profound — but their entanglement is poised to jeopardize Ray’s mother’s master plan.”
“Babysitter” is Morgan Krantz’s feature film directorial debut and will world premiere at SXSW 2015 in the Visions section.
