Story


"Afternoon Delight" is the story of Rachel, a stay-at-home mom who becomes obsessed with saving a stripper named McKenna. Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable, yet tightly coiled, thirty-something steeped in the creative class of Los Angeles's bohemian, affluent Silver Lake neighborhood. Everything looks just right-chic modernist home, successful husband, adorable child, hipster wardrobe. But when she visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and gets a private dance from McKenna, something cracks open. Rachel returns to the scene of the dance to get to know McKenna, and soon after, adopt her as a live-in nanny. This bold move unleashes unimagined and colorful waves of change into Rachel's life, marriage and community.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the result is a film that gets at true, tumultuous emotions via a scenario that's thoroughly false..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]
“.."Afternoon Delight" feels hurried and unconvincing. Still, we badly need her making movies, and I can't wait to see what she'll do next..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
