THE SISTERHOOD OF NIGHT

directed by Caryn Waechter
USA, 2014, English, 103 minutes

When Emily Parris exposes a secret society of teen girls conducted mysteriously in the woods and accuses them of sexual deviancy, the town of Kingston makes national headlines. While the accused Sisterhood upholds a vow of silence, girls across the country respond to Emily's blog with their own stories of sexual abuse. From the story by Pulitzer Prize-winner Steven Millhauser, "The Sisterhood of Night" chronicles a provocative alternative to adolescent loneliness, revealing the tragedy and humor of teenage years changed forever by the Internet age. —Lucy Doughty
