I recently was able to take a preview of an independent filmmaker and a mother of 10-year-old twins, Kim Cummings, first feature film, "In Montauk" that I think may be of interest to the mothers in on Cape Cod. It's about a pregnant photographer on the cusp of success who's affair sends her life in a shocking direction.
Julie Wagner has everything today’s young woman thinks she wants: a successful husband who adores her, a baby on the way, a close circle of family and friends, and a career as a photographer that is about to take off. So why is she alone in Montauk in the middle of December? During the cold, stark days, Julie throws herself into capturing her artistic vision for an upcoming solo show, yielding works of deep passion and instinct; at night, she restlessly taps away at her computer, plagued by uncertainty about the impending trajectories of her life.
When a prickly but brilliant composer-musician knocks on her door with an odd request, Julie ushers in a series of events that will bring her in contact with her buried hopes and fears, and force her to make choices she couldn’t have fathomed. At once shocking and wise,
In Montauk is a now-familiar story turned inside-out by a main character who can’t help but put herself into the most uncomfortable position of all—confronting life’s imperfect choices in the hopes of grasping one through which she can be true to herself.
"It’s a personal story, pulled from my own experience of being both a mother and a filmmaker and constantly faced with difficult choices. Although it is specifically about an artist, it appeals to mothers of all ages who find themselves wanting to have it all and frustrated by competing demands. At heart, it is a love story between a woman and the man who inspires her." ~Kim Cummings
The film grew out of Kim's frustration of trying to find a work/life balance once her children were born. This is something many of us can relate to! The film is being shown at the Woods Hole Film Festival on August 3 at 7pm at the Community Hall and costs only $10!
