Chloe Sevigny and Jena Malone play Emma and Angela, two sisters whose mother has recently passed away. When they receive a phone call from a stranger claiming to be a psychic and informing them that their mother “will return,” Emma elects to keep the corpse at home and prepare for the resurrection.

This atmospheric, artistic – and possibly supernatural – drama explores the lives and losses of people in rural Oregon through chilly photography of the landscape and a moody score by Owen Pallett.

Rated R. 1:36 

Showing at: Portland Museum of Art, 6:30 p.m. Friday; 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
