Mr. Marmalade by Noah Haidle

Lucy’s imaginary friend turns sinister as she forms a new bond with a real boy. This dark comedy examines the scars of abuse through a cast of characters both real and imagined: a largely absent mother, an oversexed babysitter, talking plants, and a suicidal five-year-old.

Directed by David Haugen
