The Lakewife

December 10, 2018 By Andrew Joseph Kane

Lyn and her aging mother Leona bicker like bobcats in their dilapidated lakeside home in Pennsylvania’s anthracite coal region. A former neighbor returns home to care for his own dying mother and sets into motion an unexpected and unalterable series of events that blurs the lines between living and surviving, monsters and protectors, justice and revenge. Expect a conclusion of mythic proportion in this Rust Belt black comedy equal parts Martin McDonagh and John O’Hara.
