Bentley is a woman well into her years whose most promising time of her life was stolen from her by a kid she never wanted and a quiet life she never dreamed of. She’s made incredible sacrifices for long enough and is ready to pick up her life where it was left off, 25 years ago. She’s bitter, quick, stone faced, funny, enjoys alcohol too much and is an artist at heart who’s turned cold after years in suburbia. She also had an episode of agoraphobia that lasted almost a year, a time when she stayed inside and shut down as a mother and person, causing the rift between her son to widen.

Please submit a headshot, place of residence, availability,  a short bio with a list of past film work, and links to samples of acting work.
