Years after a High School mass shooting event, an arranged meeting between two sets of parents takes place to heal and find closure. But, finding forgiveness and peace will not come easy for any of the parties involved. Written and Directed by Fran Kranz this remarkably moving and painful drama explores multiple layers of how and why we grieve, guilt, anger, and the importance of which memories of the deceased we carry. Deceptively simple in its construction this tour de force of acting allows for each of the four principles, Martha Plimpton, Ann Dowd, Jason Isaacs, and Reed Birney to each embody metric tons of empathy and compassion surrounding a subject that’s become all too commonplace in America, and, expose multiple perspectives discussed less often in public. Breathtaking at multiple points throughout its hour and fifty one minutes of runtime, for audiences looking to feel something “real” this weekend, this is your ticket. Mass is rated PG-13.
