“Original, provocative film set in 1965 about a young mother with MS, married to a prep school professor, who has an out-of-body experience that leads her away from her mundane life toward an exploration of her cosmic self. No mumbo jumbo here, but instead a gripping drama in which the main character forces the people closest to her to examine their own lives.”
