Tweetable Logline:
When life gets hard, there’s nothing like a wo(e)mance.
Elevator Pitch:
The actress and the sexpert. There’s childhood…there are the
teenage years…there’s even young adulthood. But what happens in the
great beyond (tertiary life)? When two 30-something old ‘besties’
reunite in rural Indiana, their planned weekend of adventure takes a
sudden turn. The road trip they embark on (in circles) ends up being a
harrowing journey to themselves. Via despair, humor, unsolicited wisdom
(watch out for those wise ladies), an unlikely farmer, and a blushing
boy-ingénu. Have a cup of tea, and get in the car!

About the Production:

“This highly collaborative project grows out
of my interest in what happens to people in familiar and unfamiliar
environments, especially when they reconnect after many years. ROSEHILL
is a film about vulnerability and strength, honesty and deception, and
the deep bond between two women at crossroads in their lives. Drawing on
the dual strengths of our team–our shared roots in documentary
production and our love of intelligent, subtle improvisation–ROSEHILL
will have an elastic, dynamic relationship between camera and subjects.
You haven’t seen friendship until you’ve seen it in the hands of
Josephine Decker and Kate Chamuris!” — Brigitta Wagner
