Winning the Best US Fiction Award at the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival, Becks is a charming dramedy about moving on and growing up. Midway between her abandoned life in New York and her cheating girlfriend in LA is Becks’ (Tony winner, Lena Hall) girlhood home in St. Louis where she returns to stay with her ex-nun mother (Oscar winner, Christine Lahti) and get her life back together. As she struggles to resolve her pain and an unexpected relationship blossoms with a married boutique shop owner Elyse (Mena Suvari), Becks learns how her pursuit of happiness can hurt the ones she loves. The extraordinarily talented Lena Hall shines in this musical role accompanied by Suvari, Lahti and Dan Fogler (Kung Fu Panda and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them).
