Commencement

(2009)

One actress plays three women drawn together in the grim aftermath of a high school shooting—the mother of the shooter (staph infection), one of the shooter's victims (early release), and the mother of that victim (keynote speaker). It is a deep exploration of the lives of three women that, according to SEE Magazine "... will leave you wringing your hands in helpless empathy."
