Blade’s Edge -2017
A mother struggles to come to terms with who her son is, as public opinion of him sours. Blade’s Edge pits the corrosive power of the echo-chambers that surround us against the power of blood ties and love. Told predominantly through the relationship between protagonist Mary and her best friend Elizabeth, the film explores Mary’s journey after renouncing her son, seeing her build a rationale to justify the rejection and taking her to the brink of betrayal, only to witness him perform a miracle she cannot ignore. Caught between the pragmatism of her friend, the ideology of her son’s opponents and the vitriol of the press, Mary is ultimately left with a choice: continue to reject her son as mad, which offers a form of protection for them both, or stand by him, endangering herself and giving up any power to save him.
