“Before You Know It” featured an award-winning, all-star ensemble cast, including Judith Light, Mandy Patinkin, Alec Baldwin, Hannah Pearl Utt, Jen Tullock and Mike Colter.

A long-kept family secret thrusts codependent, thirty-something sisters into a literal soap opera.

Stage manager Rachel Gurner (Hannah Pearl Utt) still lives in her childhood apartment above the theater her family owns and operates in New York City. Level-headed Rachel is the only thing standing between her family — her off-kilter actress sister Jackie (Jen Tullock), her eccentric playwright father Mel (Mandy Patinkin), and her deadpan preteen niece Dodge (Oona Yaffe) — and utter chaos.

Then, in the wake of a sudden family tragedy, Rachel and Jackie learn their presumed-deceased mother (Judith Light) is not just alive but thriving as a soap-opera star. Now the sisters’ already-precarious balance turns upside down, and Rachel must figure out how to liberate herself from this surreal imbroglio.

"A refreshing comedy. A noteworthy work from an upcoming dynamic duo, co-writers Hannah Pearl Utt and Jen Tullock, who have a chemistry that you want to see in more films, especially if they're like ‘Before You Know It’." —

"Engrossing and entertaining. A strong debut that pushes the boundaries of what movies made from the female gaze can mean to audiences of all kinds." — The Hollywood Reporter
