(2020) (Sophie Lowe, Morgan Saylor) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: As two sisters try to cover up something bad that one of them has done, they uncover unsavory aspects of the small fishing town in which they live.
Sisters Priscilla (SOPHIE LOWE) and Mary Beth Connolly (MORGAN SAYLOR) have had their life upended in the small fishing town of Easter Cove, Maine. Their beloved mother, Mary Margaret, has died, leaving them to run the local fish store and facing the likelihood of losing their childhood home due to financial issues.
Things go from bad to worse when Mary Beth decides to accompany a newcomer, Gorski (EBON MOSS-BACHRACH), back to his place that night, only to learn he's a bad and possibly murderous sort. In self-defense, she ends up killing him and informs her sister of what she's just done. But instead of going to the local police duo of veteran cop Officer Coletti (SKIPP SUDDUTH) and his much younger partner, Officer Justin Brennan (WILL BRITTAIN), they decide to dispose of the body and pretend that nothing happened.
But when Mary Beth returns to his remote home to retrieve some incriminating evidence they accidentally left there, she finds a bag of money and takes it back home, figuring no one will miss it. Unbeknownst to them, that involves their late mother's dear friend, Enid Nora Devlin (MARGO MARTINDALE), who runs the local brothel where young prostitutes such as Alexis (GAYLE RANKIN) work. That's much to the collective chagrin of a trio of senior citizens -- Susie Gallagher (JUNE SQUIBB), Gail Maguire (ANNETTE O'TOOLE) and Doreen Burke (MARCELINE HUGOT) -- who want that place shut down.
With Enid becoming suspicious of the sisters, a body being discovered, and Officer Brennan wanting to figure out what's going on, Priscilla and Mary Beth try to keep their deed secret, all while uncovering unsavory aspects of their small town.
