About the Project

Mary & Louise is a silent film about a modern problem.

After failing miserably on the set of their first “talkie”, Mary Pickford (America’s Sweetheart) and Louise Brooks (The Vamp) vow never to speak again. Out of work and past their prime, they become roommates in Brooklyn.

Stuck in her role as America’s sweetheart, and both of them still living as though in a silent film, Mary’s resentment of Louise’s antics goes politely unspoken until… threatened with the loss of her one true love…. Mary must face her fears and expose the ugliness inside herself if she is ever to get what she wants.

A comedy with dark undertones, Mary & Louise explores the ups and downs of friendship and the importance of finding one’s voice within the din of great personal and technological change.
