A well-to-do pregnant woman hires a lower-class woman to watch over her and her home. As the women grow closer to each other, the caretaker discovers her boss harbors a complicated secret tied to the cycles of the moon. “Thematically rich, it weaves together fantasy horror elements with commentaries on class, race, sexuality, and motherhood.”—Wendy Ide, Screen Daily

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
