Parent-child relationships are delicate even under the most ideal circumstances, but they can be extra trying or difficult when there’s an imbalance due to events beyond anyone’s control. Such is the case for the new film “A Light Beneath Their Feet,” about a mother-daughter relationship amidst a sea of change and turmoil. The film stars Taryn Manning as Gloria, a young mother struggling with bipolar disorder, and Madison Davenport as Beth, her daughter and the one source of stability in her life. Beth is about to leave for college soon and Gloria struggles with her imminent departure. As the two go through ups and downs, Beth weighs her options between staying local for her mother or pursuing her dream across the country while Gloria tries to learn to let go.

The film is directed by Valerie Weiss, who previously directed the romantic comedy “Losing Control.” It’s written by Moira McMahon, who previously worked on the production staff of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice.” Manning is best known for her role on “Orange Is the New Black” as Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett, and Davenport is best known for her performances in Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah,” the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler comedy “Sisters,” and the TV series version of “From Dusk Till Dawn.”
“A Light Beneath Their Feet” is currently available on DVD, VOD, and other digital platforms.
