Wild Iris

Wild Iris Following the suicide of her feckless husband Ronnie, 'wild' Iris Brevard (Academy Award Nominee, Laura Linney) and her son have no option but to move in with her critical and domineering mother Minnie (Academy Award Nominee, Gena Rowlands) whom Iris blames for driving Ronnie to his death.

Eight years pass and Iris is still there, sewing bridal gowns for pregnant teenagers at her mother's Bluebell Bridal shop and taking refuge in vodka and self recrimination: the surrounding paraphernalia of weddings a constant reminder of her own failed marriage.

Her son Lonnie meanwhile has grown up into a shy and lonely teenager who tries to avoid the constant bickering of his mother and grandmother by retreating into a fantasy world of cowboy movies and Zane Gray novels, which he hopes will help him understand the death of his father.

To Iris there seems no escape, until a second brush with tragedy forces her to act before history can repeat itself...
