A Light Beneath Their Feet stars Taryn Manning and Madison Davenport as mother and daughter in a coming-of-age drama about a family coping with bipolar disorder. Also featured is Carter Mark Jenkins as young Beth’s love interest.
Beth must choose whether to follow her own dreams or stay at home and care for her mentally ill mother. Described as emotionally raw and bracingly honest, the film looks like a sensitive treatment of a problem that can be devastating for families.
Taryn Manning has won many fans because of her brilliant performance in Orange is the New Black. Here’s a chance to see her in a completely different light, in a film that is female both in front of and behind the camera.
The cast includes Nora Dunn, Kali Hawk, and Maddie Hasson. Valerie Weiss directs. The writer is Moira McMahon. Both writer and directer also acted as executive producers.
The film will be in theaters on May 6.
