Teeny is at the right age to be one of those eternally coffee-sipping yoga mommies. But she still hasn’t gotten beyond babysitting in this breezy look at modern motherhood.
Teeny heeft eigenlijk best al de leeftijd om zelf zo’n liters hippe koffie lurkende yogamama te zijn. Maar in plaats daarvan heeft ze het nog steeds niet verder geschopt dan babysitten in deze luchtige blik op modern moederschap.
Actress Anna Margaret Hollyman’s career was going alright, she admits. At least for the indie scene: she appeared in films that were selected for major festivals, even in some lead parts. But still: festival selections don’t pay the rent. And so she moonlighted as a lot of things besides acting, including babysitting. What if, she thought, I was ever met at the door by a former classmate?
That the starting-off point of Hollyman’s fresh comedy short Maude. The lead character is a tad less grown-up than Hollyman herself, who plays her, judging by her attachment to the nickname ‘Teeny’ that she got in college – she’s really just Christina. But when she goes takes the baby for a walk, the outside world suddenly treats her as a well-rounded person. And she kind of likes it.
