    The movie, which first debuted in 2022, was wide-released on Friday. It's based on a play by the same name and stars Anna as a person recovering from alcoholism named Ella, who moves back in with her father. The film was directed by her husband, Stephen Moyer, who directed Anna previously in the film The Parting Glass, and the series True Blood, and Flack.
