Rain Beau’s End is an intimate lesbian family-drama situated in the late 1990s, depicting how the labelling of their adopted son affects a progressive lesbian couple’s relationship as they struggle to raise their family in the spotlight.
Based on a story by Chicago’s Joe Orlandino and written by Jennifer Cooney, the film tells a motherhood story starting when a prominent, progressive lesbian couple, Hannah Driver and Jules Paradise, adopts a child named Beau who is subsequently diagnosed with 47, XYY; which was believed at that time to make boys more prone to aggressive behavior (and has since been disproved).
The film stars Janelle Snow (Exodus, Chicago Med), Amanda Powell (Utopia, The Red Line), Ed Asner (Cobra Cai, Dead to Me, UP), Sean Young (Blade Runner 2049), Christian Stolte (Chicago Fire, Public Enemies), Melanie Chandra (Code Black, Law & Order SVU) and Kirk Kelleykahn
The trailer gives sneak peek of the movie where Hannah Driver runs for a mayor while trying to navigate her relationship and creating the perfect family with her partner, Jules Paradise and the bumpy road of her adopted son, Beau, who has been diagnosed with 47, XYY.
