After I Stop Lying
In After I Stop Lying, women confront the mundane and strive for the sacred. One lonely student reaches out to touch a statue of Jesus. A new mother sees, for the first time, the beauty in the overhead lights of a grocery store. A sexual adventurer claims her dance with Apollo. Bacharach takes on pivotal moments in a woman’s life—trying to conceive, leaving a child at day care, considering breast cancer—and does so with honesty, clarity, and intensity.
