‘So B. It’ starring Talitha Bateman (Good Deed Entertainment)
For as long as Heidi can remember, her mother has had only 22 words in her vocabulary. And that’s fine with the precious 12-year-old. She and Mama live happily, in the bubble of love and protection provided by their remarkable neighbour, the nurturing but agoraphobic Bernadette.
Then one day a new word pops out of Mama’s mouth – the mysterious “soof” – and it changes everything. Heidi is propelled on a solo cross-country journey of discovery and loss, truth and identity. Secrets boil to the surface, long-hidden fears are faced, and Heidi finally learns who she is and where she and her childlike Mama came from.
So B. It is a tale of longing and family lies, of heartbreak and personal courage with just a touch of magical whimsy.
Directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal & written by Garry Williams, So B. It is based on the novel of the same name by Sarah Weeks.
