The Moment

Los Angeles Premiere!

Jennifer Jason Leigh gives a riveting performance as Lee, an acclaimed international photojournalist who returns home to Los Angeles after a traumatic experience abroad. Lee finds herself falling in love with John (Martin Henderson), a charismatic younger man with a complicated past. Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) plays Lee’s 22-year-old daughter Jessie, an aspiring photographer with ambivalent feelings toward her mother. Together the three form an explosive triangle in this complex psychological thriller.
