About Blood Pressure:
Nicole, 41, is a pharmacist with a husband and two teenage kids, who is at a point in her life when she is asking if ‘this is it,’ or whether there’s something more.
One day she gets a letter from an anonymous Observer who knows her daily habits, and her potential, intimately. He has a plan for her, if she is interested. The letter contains a green card that she should place in her window, if she wishes to pursue the mysterious relationship. If not, she should throw the letter away, and she will never hear from the Observer again...
Stars: Jonas Chernick, Michelle Giroux, and Tatiana Maslany.
The screening of Blood Pressure will be preceded by, OMG, an inter-generational short film by Siobhan Devine about 14-year-old emo-goth Kaylee who thinks she is the top of the food chain when it comes to being misunderstood. After a monster fight with her parents over her texting habit Kaylee runs away to her understanding grandma's house. All is going well until Kaylee's cell phone battery runs out.
