Among the films selected to play in the Narrative Feature program at this year’s Slamdance Film Festival is “Mad,” filmmaker Robert G. Putka’s story of a matriarch pushed past the edge of a nervous breakdown. The drama stars Jennifer Lafleur, Maryann Plunkett and Eilis Cahill and will be making its world premiere at Slamdance later this month.
More than just another nervous breakdown film, “Mad” also involves the matriarch’s two daughters, who refuse to give a damn about her condition. Their esentment towards their mother eventually hits a breaking point as the three must confront one another if everyone wants to make it out with a piece of their sanity left intact.
