"Starring Academy Award winning actress Marcia Gay Harden in the role of Inga, Home: A Film by Mary Haverstick follows Inga, a mother with the soul of a poet at a crossroads. Her estranged husband Hermann (played by Michael Gaston) is bereft of emotional support for her in the wake of her recovery from breast cancer, let alone her passion for buying and restoring and house that reminds her of her childhood home. She shares a close bond with her eight-year-old daughter, and though she is troubled by her decaying marriage, she retains a strong spirit of optimism, as expressed in her own writing. A dramatic and moving saga, highly recommended; bonus features include deleted scenes, storyboards, and poems. 84 minutes.
