Trailer: Homemakers

Homemakers

Making its NYC premiere at Brooklyn’s Northside Festival on June 16th, Homemakers is the story of part-time Austin pPunk singer — and full-time harbinger of chaos and destruction — Irene McCabey. She arrives in Pittsburgh to claim her inheritance: a crumbling, abandoned three-story row house built by her great-grandfather. With the help of a drinking buddy who happens to be her long lost cousin, Irene attempts a boozy restoration project and discovers in the forgotten home a hidden urge to settle down—but when shit gets shitty, Irene’s newfound domesticity may not be strong enough to subdue the rampaging child within. At the film’s center is a searing, multi-layered performance by Rachel McKeon as Irene.

Homemakers recalls the Punk girl oeuvre of Times Square and the Gen-Y self-discovery of Frances Ha, but is unique unto itself with its irreverence, humor — embodied in its eclectic set design. The film also boasts a particularly kick-ass female protagonist in McKeon’s Irene.

It’s the winner of the Audience Award at the Independent Film Festival Boston.
