Always Shine

Type: New Blu-Ray
Two friends, both actresses with differing degrees of success (Halt and Catch Fire's Mackenzie Davis and Masters of Sex's Caitlin FitzGerald), travel from Los Angeles to Big Sur for a weekend getaway to reconnect. Once alone, however, the two women's competitiveness, suppressed jealousies and deep-seated resentments boil to the surface, causing them to lose grasp not just of the true nature of their relationship, but also of their own identities. Sophia Takal's ALWAYS SHINE wraps itself in an evocative shroud of dread and paranoia that lingers long after the final frame.
