Premiering at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival, SADIE is the new film from writer/director Megan Griffiths. SADIE is the story of a 13-year-old girl (Sophia Mitri Schloss) who lives at home with her mother (Melanie Lynskey) while her father serves repeated tours in the military. Sadie is extremely attached to her father despite his prolonged absence, and when her mother begins dating a new man (John Gallagher Jr.), Sadie takes extreme measures to end the relationship and safeguard her family through the only tactics she knows – those of war.
The film, which is in the fest’s Narrative Feature Competition, also features Arrested Development‘s Tony Hale, Orange is the New Black actress Danielle Brooks, and Keith Williams who has appeared in The Last Man on Earth. Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready composed the film’s score.
