Imaginary Order

About

For Cathy, life as she’s always known it seems to be slipping away. Her sense of significance is crumbling as she worries that her husband is having an affair and her 13-year-old daughter is becoming estranged. Desperate to regain some semblance of order, Cathy retreats to her sister’s home, where she cat sits, compulsively cleans, and spies on a neighboring family. One by one, these bizarre neighbors—mom, dad, and teenage son—lure Cathy into their lives and ignite her rebellion. Yet when Cathy becomes the object of the teenage son’s obsession, he threatens to unravel everything—from her precarious marriage to her daughter’s innocence to her own wavering sanity.

Imaginary Order is a deliciously witty and disarmingly funny film that marks distinguished writer/director Debra Eisenstadt’s Sundance Film Festival debut. Buoyed by an exceptional supporting cast, Wendi McLendon-Covey (TV’s The Goldbergs) delivers a career-defining performance as Cathy. You will laugh out loud and squirm in your seat as complications escalate in this wild and bumpy ride of one woman on the verge.
