Anna Baskin, an exhausted, workaholic actress, abruptly extricates herself from a successful but mind-numbing TV role, returning to her past life in New York to reinvent herself.

Synopsis

A WOMAN, A PART Director Elisabeth Subrin will be appearing at the opening night screening of her movie on Friday, December 15 at 7:30 p.m. for a Q+A with the audience.‚Äč

Anna Baskin (Maggie Siff, Mad Men, Billions) is at a crossroads. She's a successful television actress on a hit network show in Los Angeles and has played the same brittle “career woman” part for years. After a particularly egregious confrontation on set, Anna reveals to her manager Leslie (Khandi Alexander, Treme, Scandal) that she wants to quit acting -- even though leaving her show would result in a huge lawsuit and ruin her career. She impulsively flies to New York in an attempt to return to the past life she left behind, reconnecting with lapsed friends from her '90s experimental theater troupe: Kate (Cara Seymour, The Knick, American Psycho), a now-sober, queer ex-actress, and Isaac (John Ortiz, Silver Linings Playbook, Fast and Furious), a married, struggling playwright.

Isaac welcomes Anna with open arms—an acceptance possibly fueled by his hope that Anna’s celebrity can help his career — while Kate can’t forgive Anna for abandoning them for Hollywood. But when Anna learns that they’ve used her past life as inspiration for their own new play, she experiences a complex betrayal — a betrayal, that, paradoxically, leads her back to the intoxicating security of losing herself in a part. As her return tears open new wounds, all three are forced to reckon with their pasts and uncertain futures.

A WOMAN, A PART marks the feature-length debut of celebrated filmmaker and artist Elisabeth Subrin (Shulie, The Caretakers). It’s an astute critique of how women are portrayed in media, the ways in which personal relationships intertwine with and shape the creative process, and the difficulty of change — all set against a gentrifying New York City.
