A Thousand Odd Days

14m Drama 2023

When a son goes to the coast to visit the estranged, troubled mother he hasn’t seen in three years, he struggles to reconnect with her.

A deeply personal work for writer/director Riley Blakeway, A Thousand Odd Days explores an intimate relationship between a mother struggling with addiction, mental illness and poverty, and the son who wants to escape the shared trauma eroded by his empathy for her. A cutting, complicated yet affecting film etched with despair and regret.
