Blush

2020 / Subtitles available

Directed by: Debra Eisenstadt

Comedy, Drama

The sexual, psychological, and moral unravelling of an obsessive-compulsive suburban mom.

What we love about this film

In Blush Wendi McLendon-Covey turns in a barnstorming performance - a darksided version of her turn as the Goldbergs' mother, both stuck with their neuroses (and children) in the middle of suburbia. Themes of mental health are understated but present in this simmering drama.

Awards and festivals

In the press

""Abrasive and often bleakly funny, the film is anchored by an unrestrained lead performance from Wendi McLendon-Covey as a Type A PTA mom who engineers her own absurd downfall, one well-intentioned decision at a time.""

Andrew Barker

Variety

"The characters in [Blush] all prove surprising, yet not always in good ways. They're smart and they're foolish. They're needy, insecure, self-medicating. They blunder on, goofy and aching, and sometimes they tend to unhealed wounds."

Sheri Linden

The Hollywood Reporter

""The writer-director Debra Eisenstadt [...] brings enough eccentricity to the material to make Blush hum with disquieting originality""
