3 Backyards,a film: Edie Falco and Eric Mendelsohn In Person! Opening Night Celebration: Friday, March 18 at 7:15pm From Long Island writer-director Eric Mendelsohn, the only two-time winner of the directing prize at Sundance (first for Judy Berlin in 1999 which also starred fellow Long Islander Edie Falco) comes 3 Backyards, the story of three residents of the same Long Island town over the course of one seemingly perfect autumn day. The film looks past familiar suburban exteriors and instead peers deeply into the private lives of its characters as they embark on tiny, personal journeys that eventually carry them vast distances from everything that is familiar. A businessman (Elias Koteas) with marital troubles gets “lost” on a business trip without ever leaving town. A little girl (Rachel Resheff) steals her mother’s jewelry in the morning and finds herself faced with frightening, adult decisions by late afternoon. A well-meaning housewife (Edie Falco) offers her celebrity neighbor (Embeth Davidtz) a lift and the trip detours into unsettling territory. By day’s end, the familiar geography of the suburban landscape dissolves into a place of mystery, loss and potential danger; a dreamscape where identity can be challenged, shattered, and sometimes reclaimed.
