Molly McGlynn named one of Playback’s Five to Watch

Molly McGlynn

Each year Playback names five emerging filmmakers who are just about to hit it big and profiles them at the turning point of their careers.

This year Molly McGlynn (NSI Drama Prize) is the first filmmaker out of the gate. Playback spoke with Molly fans including Deepa Mehta about her professional maturity and storytelling instinct.

Molly’s debut feature as writer/director, Mary Goes Round, premiered over the weekend at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The film tells the story of an alcoholic substance abuse counsellor who retreats to her hometown to learn her estranged father has terminal cancer.
