Once Upon a River is a drama set in rural Michigan, on the edge of the Stark River. Margo, a Native American teen, endures trauma and tragedy before setting out on a quest to find her estranged mother. On her journey, she meets all sorts of interesting people, and comes to understand herself, while leaving her difficult past behind.
I am excited to see this film because I love a good coming-of-age story, especially with a non-white star. The movie sounds very intriguing, has won awards in several different film festivals, and is adapted from a bestselling novel of the same name.
The movie can be rented through the Michigan Theater Virtual Movie Palace, for $12 (and less for members). Watch the trailer and rent it here: https://www.michtheater.org/screenings/once-upon-a-river/
