Images Online is a virtual effort by Images Cinema to continue to introduce the best new films to our community while we are temporarily closed. Films can be watched online on your at-home screens. The cost of each online “ticket” sold will be split between Grasshopper Films and Images Cinema, so each rental will directly help the theater weather these challenging times. Thanks to the filmmakers for their partnership, and thanks to you, our film-loving community, for your continued support of Images.

Fourteen
Mara and Jo, in their twenties, have been close friends since middle school. Jo, the more outgoing figure, is a social worker who runs through a series of brief but intense relationships. Mara, a less splashy personality than Jo, bounces among teacher aide jobs while trying to land a position in elementary education, and writes fiction in her spare time. She too has a transient romantic life, though she seems to settle down after meeting Adam, a mild-mannered software developer. It soon becomes apparent that Jo, despite her intellectual gifts, is unreliable in her professional life, losing and acquiring jobs at a troubling rate. Substance abuse may be responsible for Jo’s instability… but some observers suspect a deeper problem. Over the course of a decade, the more stable Mara sometimes tries to help, sometimes backs away to preserve herself, but never leaves behind her powerful childhood connection with Jo.
