Daly gives the kind of lived-in performance that rarely generates awards consideration, though it really should. Full Review

Through bursts of comedy, poignancy, conflict, song, dance, and theatrical whimsy, what emerges is akin to a homespun symphony of soulfulness. Full Review

Rating: 8/10 -- [It] speaks about just how inseparable art and life is-the ways we use it to heal, grow, and see. Art is that which makes us human. Full Review

A warm and prickly humanist triumph that features no movie stars, disperses its attention across a large ensemble and feels meticulously handcrafted in every respect. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Like a high wire act without an act, the lack of cuts putting emphasis on the performers and what they're saying rather than directorial style. Full Review

"A Bread Factory" has an immense cast, a deliberate pace and thematic ambition to spare - but it also has a ground-level, plain-spoken modesty that renders it hypnotic. Full Review

Product Description:

The acclaimed new work from filmmaker Patrick Wang (In the Family), featuring a remarkable performance from actress Tyne Daly, is the story of The Bread Factory, a community arts center in the small town of Checkford, told in two films. In part one, after 40 years of running The Bread Factory, Dorothea (Daly) and Greta (Elisabeth Henry) are suddenly fighting for survival when a celebrity couple performance artists from China come to Checkford and build an enormous complex down the street catapulting big changes in their small town. Part two revolves around rehearsals for the Greek play Hecuba. But the real theatrics are outside the theater where the town has been invaded by bizarre tourists and mysterious tech start-up workers.
