This film has no MPAA Rating, however it does contain occasional strong language and sexual content.
The Cantwells want to be a perfect family but none of them know how to do that in
THE PLAYROOM, a coming-of-age drama about the fine line between childhood and becoming an adult.

Set in the suburbs during the 1970’s, the story unfolds like a dream wrapped around a family drama, one in which all members of the Cantwell family struggle to find their way in a rapidly changing world. Maggie (newcomer Olivia Harris) is a vulnerable yet tempestuous teenager who acts as big sister and surrogate mother to her three younger siblings. Upstairs in the attic she tells them fantastical stories, but only to mask what is happening downstairs. As her hard-drinking parents, Martin and Donna (Academy Award-nominee John Hawkes and Molly Parker), entertain guests, Maggie grapples with their
flawed choices and is thrust into a world she might not be ready for.

Emotionally riveting and surprisingly funny, THE PLAYROOM is the story of how Maggie and her siblings survive the most fateful night of their lives.

In this wickedly funny musical – fantasy adaptation of Washington Irving’s classic tale of superstition and village rivalry, gawky schoolmaster Ichabod Crane fancies himself a dashing, worldly man of learning, capable of winning the heart of Katrina Van Tassel. Will this beautiful daughter of a wealthy local farmer return Ichabod’s affections, or does she have other ideas? What will be the outcome when Ichabod confronts his desires, fears, and of course, the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow?
