About The Lipstick Project

 

The Lipstick ProjectFact: being in the hospital sucks. Some part of you hurts like hell. You smell. You haven’t showered in a week. You pee in a bucket. You breathe recycled air. Your arms resemble a pincushion. Your nails are chipping and your eyebrows need waxing.

 

The Lipstick Project was founded to enhance the healing process by acknowledging that manicures can be medicinal. They work in partnership with hospitals and hospices to bring a quintessential spa experience to patients who are either in recovery or who are peacefully approaching the end of their life. Read more.

“It’s one of the best movies of the year and one of the truest portrayals I’ve ever seen about troubled teens and the people who dedicate their lives to trying to help them.” Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times.

Synopsis: Grace (a breakthrough performance from former child star Brie Larson) is a twenty- something supervisor at a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers. Passionate and tough, Grace is a formidable caretaker of the kids in her charge – and in love with her long-term boyfriend and co-worker, Mason (John Gallagher Jr.) But Grace’s own difficult past – and the surprising future that suddenly presents itself – throw her into unforeseen confusion, made all the sharper with the arrival of a new intake at the facility – Jayden (Kaitlyn Dever), a gifted but troubled teenage girl with whom Grace has a charged connection. She and Mason also struggle to help Marcus (Keith Stanfield) – an intense, quiet kid who is about to turn 18 – manage through the difficulty of having to leave the facility. Grace comes to find – in both her work and the new teenager in her care – surprising sources of redemption. And while the subject matter is complex and often dark, this lovingly realized film finds truth – and humor – in unexpected places. ~ VIFF Site

A compact masterpiece of storytelling that brims equally with ambition and humility. It is, by a wide margin, the best film I have seen so far this year.” Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
