Overview

One woman's love of technology runs up against her feelings about having a baby in this independent comedy-drama written and directed by Annie J. Howell and Lisa Robinson. Sarah (Anna Margaret Hollyman) is a computer technician and gadget freak living in New York City who has discovered she's pregnant with the help of a new digital home pregnancy testing device. Sarah's boyfriend Leon (André Holland) is thrilled by the news, but she's more wary, preferring to focus on her obstetrician's ultrasound equipment than the child it's used to examine. Sarah's sister Emily (Sarah Rafferty) invites her to come to Los Angeles for a baby shower, and against her better judgment Sarah takes her up on the offer. However, the party throws Sarah into an emotional crisis, and she decides she needs to reconnect with her folks. Spending time with her father (Richard Hoag), who inspired Sarah's love of technology and is having an long-distance relationship he only knows how to negotiate via Skype, is not problem, but not only does Sarah not get along with her mom (Mary Beth Peil), her decision to live off the grid makes it difficult for Sarah to even find her. Small, Beautifully Moving Parts received its world premiere at the 2011 South by Southwest Film Festival.
