Mouthpiece (2018)

  • Drama
  • 1h 32m

A powerful, funny and highly original look into the conflicted psyche of a fiercely independent millennial woman – played by two actresses simultaneously (Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava).

Cassie is a single writer who lives by her own rules. She’s also a bit of a disaster. Following the sudden death of her mother, Elaine, she finds herself in crisis. Unable to think straight with a debate raging inside her head, she battles it out while figuring out what to say at her mother’s funeral.

What unfolds is a wild careening through grief, anger, sex and self-sabotage in an exploration of the messy lives of women from different generations. Raucous jokes, musical numbers and heart-breaking memories add up to a deeply moving and political portrait of a mother and a daughter as seen through the eyes of one conflicted young woman.
