Program Notes

Little Woods, North Dakota, a fracking boomtown well beyond its prime. Ollie is trying to survive the last few days of her probation after getting caught illegally running prescription pills over the Canadian border. But when her mother dies, she is thrust back into the life of her estranged sister Deb (James), who is facing her own crisis with an unplanned pregnancy and a deadbeat ex. The two find they have one week to settle the mortgage on their mother’s house or face foreclosure. As bills and pressure mount, Ollie faces a choice: whether to return to a way of life she thought she’d left behind for just one more score or to leave it all behind. A taught and affecting thriller about sisters pushed to extremes from award-winning director Nia DaCosta.


OFFICIAL SELECTION

Tribeca Film Festival

Critics' Praise

“Tessa Thompson executes one of the best performances of her career.”
— Jamie Broadnax, Black Girl Nerds

“Nia DaCosta’s absorbing debut is laced with urgent dread, experienced by characters you care deeply about.”
— Sam Weisberg, Village Voice

Little Woods is a story we don’t often see told from a black woman’s lens, especially not in this particular setting. It’s a story of sisters who band together and fight against every complication.”
— Aramide Tinubu, Shadow and Act

“The life-on-the-margins drama makes a fine, tense vehicle for Tessa Thompson, who in the last few years has stood out in a variety of genres.”
— John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
