It is 1969 and seventeen-year-old Lou Field (Isabelle) and her sisters are ready for change. Tired of enduring kiddie games to humour a Dad (Rennie) desperate for the occasional shred of family normalcy, the Field house is a place where their Mom’s (Richardson) semi-catatonic state is the result of a tragic event years before they were born. But as the autumn unfolds, life is about to take a turn. This is the year that Lou and her sisters are torn between the lure of the world outside and the claustrophobic world of the Field house that can no longer contain the girls’ restless adolescence.

A story of a calamitous family trying to function, Falling Angels is a story populated by beautiful youthful rebels and ill-equipped parents coping with the draw of a world in turmoil beyond the boundaries of home and a manicured lawn. Based on the novel by Barbara Gowdy.
