Maytag Virgin by Audrey Cefaly
Set in the small fictional town of Lenoraville, Alabama, Maytag Virgin tells the story of recently widowed Elizabeth Nash and her new next door neighbor, Jack Key. Lizzy grieves outwardly over the recent death of her husband, but her inner world is filled with deep regret and secret longing. Jack's life, with its own tragic underpinnings, is one of loneliness and solitary contemplation. He is an observer and he sees something in Lizzy that he cannot ignore, something at once achingly alive and profoundly unmovable. Maytag Virgin attempts to explore the bridge between loss and redemption, between enlightened selfawareness and reckless apathy. When the only lasting change comes from total reclamation, what must we jettison to stay afloat? Whom must we hurt... and how much? What was built must be leveled. What seems lost is not. Who we were, we are no longer. Every one of us is broken. And every one of us can be whole again.
Written and directed by Audrey Cefaly.
