Celeste Davis in Purgatory House

Purgatory House

2004 R

Fourteen-year-old Celeste Davis wrote and stars in this stylized film chronicling the teen angst of Silver Strand, who feels disconnected from the world around her and is caught in a form of emotional limbo. After she dies, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery and a quest for unconditional love. A dark and quirky nonlinear approach to storytelling by director Cindy Baer helps reinforce the confusion and turmoil of the main character.
