AFTERNOON DELIGHT is a comedy-drama written and directed by Jill Soloway, stars Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple, Josh Radnor, Jessica St. Clair, Michaela Watkins, Josh Stamberg, and Jane Lynch. The film, which bowed at 2013 Sundance Film Festival back in January where it won Best Director for Soloway, is about the sexual awakening of a woman in a sexless marriage.
It is the story of Rachel (Hahn), a stay-at-home mom who becomes obsessed with saving a stripper named McKenna (Temple). Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable, yet tightly coiled, thirty-something steeped in the creative class of Los Angeles’s bohemian, affluent Silver Lake neighborhood. Everything looks just right—chic modernist home, successful husband, adorable child, hipster wardrobe. But when she visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and gets a private dance from McKenna, something cracks open. Rachel returns to the scene of the dance to get to know McKenna, and soon after, adopt her as a live-in nanny. This bold move unleashes unimagined and colorful waves of change into Rachel’s life, marriage and community.
