Post-show: Local musicians Siren Mayhew and Sean McMahon play their original music during a post-screening beer-and-wine reception sponsored exclusively by MVY Radio.
Inspired by the real life of singer/songwriter Alyssa Robbins, BECKS follows a musician (Hall) who moves back to her childhood home in St. Louis after a crushing breakup with her longtime girlfriend (Kiyoko). While performing for tips at a local tavern and struggling to reconnect with her ultra-Catholic mother (Lahti), she strikes up a unique friendship with the wife (Suvari) of an old nemesis. Becks begins to discover her musical voice as she performs deeply personal songs about her ex and the loss of their relationship. Driven by an original score, the film’s musical numbers bring a unique new voice to the American musical movie.
“The movie exemplifies how small judgments in pace, performance and soundtrack can transcend modest trappings.”–Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
“With Becks, directors Elizabeth Rohrbaugh and Daniel Powell have crafted an understated musical that really works, thanks to Alyssa Robbins’s heartfelt music and standout performances from the cast.”–Tatiana Craine, Village Voice
