A bittersweet drama boasting powerful lead performances from Thomas Duplessie and the late Academy Award-winning screen legend Cloris Leachman, in her final starring role.

In Jump, Darling, Leachman is brilliant as Margaret, a woman in her mid-90s, living on her own, whose physical and mental health is slowly declining. She is joined by her grandson, Russell (Duplessie), an aimless drag queen ingénue, fresh from a relationship breakup, and pursuing his stalled dream of being a professional actor. Director Phil Connell’s Jump, Darling is a moving intergenerational tale of two people at different stages in their lives, both searching for connection and meaning. You’re sure to fall in love with this heartfelt, funny, and engrossing family drama.
