    Drama

    Plagued by the abuse of her past and the turmoil of failed intimate encounters, Laura struggles to find a lover and a sense of normalcy. Her beacon of hope comes in sixteen year-old Eva, a talented pianist disillusioned by the life her mother imposes upon her. An unlikely relationship is formed between the two and Eva becomes an obsession to Laura. In light of Eva's unhappiness, Laura convinces her to runaway to her house and they soon find themselves caught within an intense entanglement. Manipulation, denial and codependency fuel what ultimately becomes a fractured dynamic that can only sustain itself for so long.

    Press

    Wood is frighteningly good as Laura, earning her place as one our most versatile and risk-taking actresses.

    Jude Dry, Indie Wire

    Too worthy for its own good.

    Jon Frosch, The Hollywood Reporter

    As a disturbed young woman who becomes a victimizer, Evan Rachel Wood proves again that she's a great actress and a star.

    We like to be subtle, but give clues that are not necessary in your face.

    Siblings Carlos and Jason Sanchez have been collaborating together for the past decade. For the majority of that time the brothers have worked in photography, producing large-scale photographic prints reminiscent of film stills; complex mise-en-scenes that explore psychological landscapes. Their work is represented by art galleries in Toronto, San Francisco and Amsterdam, and has been exhibited throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe. Their images are also included in the art collections of major museums and respected private collectors around the world. In 2003 they produced, directed, shot, and scored their short film, EASTER PARTY. Since 2010 the brothers have been directing music videos and advertisements in Canada. A WORTHY COMPANION is their first feature film.
