Set in rural Pennsylvania, Deb Callahan’s (Sienna Miller) life is changed forever when her teenage daughter mysteriously disappears, and she is left to raise her young grandson on her own. The story unfolds over the course of 11 years: we journey with Deb from the time her daughter vanishes, through the trials-and-tribulations of subsequent years, and ultimately to the long-awaited discovery of the truth.
“American Woman is chockfull of powerful scenes - and the radiant Sienna Miller ignites every single one of them… American Woman reiterates the importance of kindness and family. It’s about grief, achieving closure, persevering against all odds… Jake Scott’s feature is certainly (a)…contender for one of 2019’s best films. At the very least, its lead now deserves mention amongst the greats.” - Alex Saveliev, Irish Film Critic
