Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “A loving mom becomes compelled to reconnect with her creative passions after years of sacrificing herself for her family. Her leap of faith takes her on an epic adventure that jump-starts her life and leads to her triumphant rediscovery.
‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette’ is based on the bestseller about Bernadette Fox, a Seattle woman who had it all—a loving husband and a brilliant daughter. When she unexpectedly disappears, her family sets off on an exciting adventure to solve the mystery of where she might have gone.
The novel by Maria Semple remained on the New York Times Bestseller List for a year and remained for 72 weeks on NPR’s Paperback Fiction Bestseller List.
Bernadette Fox (Cate Blanchett) is an agoraphobic architect and mother, who goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica. She hates people, she hates leaving the house, and more than anything, she hates the other parents at her daughter's school. After her anxiety-ridden mother disappears, 15-year-old Bee (Emma Nelson) does everything she can to find out where she is and what really happened to her, discovering her troubled past in the process.”
