In rural Western Massachusetts, 11-year-old Lacy (Zoe Ziegler) spends the summer of 1991 at home, enthralled by her own imagination and the attention of her mother, Janet (Julianne Nicholson). As the months pass, three visitors enter their orbit, all captivated by Janet. Written and directed by playwright Annie Baker, this debut draws you in with its cinematic charms and delivers a powerful thematic finish.

“[The film’s] soul emerges in the questions Baker waits for us to ask. What turns stubborn girls into pliable women? Was our personality forged in opposition to our parents, or will we repeat their mistakes?” — Amy Nicolson, The Washington Post
Janet Planet is a brilliant debut for Baker, who doesn’t so much translate her artistry to the screen as discover a whole new frontier for her singular sensibility.” — Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times
