Melissa and Richie live below the poverty line and surviving on Richie's monthly disability check and Melissa's small hourly wage from her job at a convenience store. Desperately poor but very much in love, they are ecstatic when they discover that Melissa is pregnant. But when the restraining order she placed on her obsessive ex-boyfriend, Justin, is lifted, her problems suddenly become magnified. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Laurie Collyer (SHERRYBABY), SUNLIGHT JR. was nominated for Best Narrative Feature at 2013's Tribeca Film Festival. Featuring stand-out performances from Oscar nominees Naomi Watts (THE IMPOSSIBLE, DIANA) and Matt Dillon (CRASH, TO DIE FOR) and rising star Norman Reedus (THE WALKING DEAD) in a menacing, electrifying role, this is indie filmmaking at its very best.
