Addicted To Fresno Trailer


After her sister Shannon returns to Fresno, California following her stint in rehab for sex addiction (which in turn came after she was fired as a schoolteacher), Martha takes it upon herself to help her get a fresh start. She invites her to stay with her and gets her a job as a hotel maid in Fresno Suites where Martha also works. It isn't long before Shannon relapses big time, and her failure to maintain responsibility results in her accidentally killing a hotel guest, who also happens to be an Olympic hammer-thrower. She manages to persuade Martha to help hide the body, but before they can get very far they are discovered by a couple named Ruby and Gerald - and they want $25,000 in three days to stay quiet about the incident. The only option they have is to commit more crime, and so they rob a sex shop in order to flog the stock and make up the money. They're hardly professionals and they'll be lucky to escape this mess scot free, but maybe Shannon can finally learn to think about others before herself.

Afternoon Delight Review


Very Good

There are some very dark corners in this cheeky comedy, which explores relationships and sexuality in unusually realistic ways. But filmmaker Jill Soloway doesn't offer easy answers, forcing her characters to sort out a messy situation on their own. And it's refreshing that we are left to find the message ourselves.

The story centres on stay-at-home mum Rachel (Kathryn Hahn), raising her young son Logan (Sawyer Ever) while her husband Jeff (Josh Radnor) is a hotshot app-creator. But this domestic set-up hasn't helped their sex life, so Rachel goes to a strip club with her pal Stephanie (Jessica St. Clair) for some inspiration. There she meets lap dancer McKenna (Juno Temple), and later contrives to become her friend, eventually inviting her to live in their spare room and work as a nanny to Logan. But of course Jeff is freaked out to have a stripper in the house.

After terrific supporting parts in everything from Revolutionary Road to Wanderlust, Hahn steps into a lead role like a natural. She holds the film together effortlessly, giving Rachel a loose complexity that makes her likeable even when she does something stupid. Her chats with her therapist (a hilarious Jane Lynch) help show how her life hasn't gone as expected, and the way she reaches out to this stripper feels intriguingly uncharacteristic and potentially perilous, but also edgy and invigorating. Opposite her, Temple is wonderfully free-spirited and unpredictable.

Rachel is a married stay at home mother who you'd think had no worries in the world; she has a well-off husband, a beautiful house, an adorable son and plenty of friends but somehow, she just doesn't seem to fit in. She visits her therapist regularly to discuss her floundering career prospects and totally diminishing sex life. One day, however, a friend of hers comes up with an idea to hit a strip club where Rachel meets a 19-year-old lap dancer named McKenna. Rachel later bumps into her in the street, where she had been thrown out of her home, and offers her a place to stay. Enlisting her as a live-in nanny, Rachel becomes fixated on helping McKenna find a better life, to the shock of her husband Jeff and friends. McKenna's presence soon becomes a strain on her marriage and Jeff starts to wonder if it's Rachel who needs the help, not McKenna.

Primetime Emmy nominated Jill Soloway ('Six Feet Under', 'United States of Tara') has directed and written this comedy drama about true happiness and contentment with the cards you have been dealt. It's poignancy and gentle humour won it the Directing Award at 2013 Sundance Film Festival, with it also being nominated for the Grand Jury Prize.
