Cry It Out

Jessie is a corporate lawyer with a glamorous Manhattan life. Lina has a night-school nursing degree and terrible credit—but they have one huge thing in common: they’ve been cracked open by the love they feel for their newborns. One coffee quickly becomes a daily coffee, as Jessie and Lina laugh through the highs and lows of motherhood. But their intimacy is punctured when a stranger who lives in the mansion up on the cliff appears in the yard, asking if they would include his wife, a new mom who is having “a hard time,” in their coffee klatch. The duo tries to become a trio, but with very mixed—and surprising—results. After all, this is a town where the haves and the have-nots live in very close company. A comedy with dark edges, Cry It Out takes an honest look at the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work after an absurdly short maternity leave, and the effect class has on parenthood in America.
