Cast of <I>Mass</I> Dives Deep into This Human Story

by Kit Bowen 16 October, 2021

The powerful Mass explores an all-too-familiar and tragic subject of school shootings, told from the perspective of two different families.

In a small church basement, Jay (Jason Isaacs) and Gail (Martha Plimpton) -- the parents of a high schooler who was killed in a school shooting -- steel themselves to meet with Linda (Ann Dowd) and Richard (Reed Birney) – the parents of the teenager who was the mass shooter.

Both couples are searching for answers, as they try to dissect what happened, lay open terrible wounds, and somehow find a way to heal through forgiveness. Mass is a master class in both acting, writing and directing – a simplistic scenario that digs in and cuts deep into human tragedy and then rises to a cathartic and meaningful conclusion.

ScreenPicks’ Kit Bowen spoke with stars Jason Isaacs, Ann Dowd and Reed Birney, along with writer/director Fran Krantz about this extremely affecting film… watch below!
