Movie Info

Flailing thirty-four-year-old Bridget (Kelly O'Sullivan) finally catches a break when she meets a nice guy and lands a much-needed job nannying six-year-old Frances (played by a scene-stealing Ramona Edith-Williams). But an unwanted pregnancy introduces an unexpected complication. To make matters worse, she clashes with the obstinate Frances and struggles to navigate a growing tension between Frances's moms. Amidst her tempestuous personal relationships, a reluctant friendship with Frances emerges, and Bridget contends with the inevitable joys and shit-shows of becoming a part of someone else's family.

Saint Frances is smart and original and anti-sensationalist. It is also a very good film, which speaks to you but never shouts.

I do wish "Saint Frances" indulged in or two fewer getting-to-know-you montages. But I say that about most every movie that comes along, even the good ones.

[Kelly] O'Sullivan's screenplay, much like her performance, is sweet without ever turning sickly. Alex Thompson's direction, in turn, carefully matches her tone.

December 8, 2020 | Rating: 4/5

Like all the best films about fumbling your way through to deeper self-understanding, Saint Frances doesn't feel too programmed, and leaves a lot of mess on the table.

Loosely structured, but satisfactory in its narrative shape, the picture deftly escorts us through the embarrassments and dilemmas of everyday life in a hipper part of Chicago.

You could also describe it as the missing link between Bridesmaids and Roma.
