Andrea Riseborough delivers a tour-de-force performance that led to a (well-deserved) Oscar nomination which shocked the Hollywood establishment.

Leslie (Riseborough) is a West Texas single mother struggling to provide for her son when she wins the lottery and a chance at a good life. But a few short years later the money is gone and Leslie is on her own, living hard and fast at the bottom of a bottle as she runs from the world of heartbreak she left behind.

With her charm running out and with nowhere to go, Leslie returns home. Unwelcome and unwanted by those she wronged, it’s Sweeney (Marc Maron), a lonely motel clerk, who takes a chance when no one else will. With his support, Leslie comes face to face with the consequences of her actions, a life of regret, and a second chance to make a good life for her and her son.

Inspired by a true story, the debut feature from Better Call Saul executive producer Michael Morris, To Leslie, is marked by some wonderfully nuanced performances, especially Riseborough’s.
