When a woman meets her boyfriend for a romantic night out, a martini triggers childhood memories that threaten her ability to trust and love. Based on true events and a poem, narrated by Julianne Moore.
Happy Hour screened as an official selection at 15 festivals, winning several awards and honors — garnering praise from industry luminaries, such as Academy Award Winning Writer/Director Robert Benton: "Happy Hour is a lush, elegiac film about an extremely difficult subject and Ms. Claggett handles it masterfully. "
The film was made to help in some small way to dispel fear and shame; forge a better understanding of complicity plus the psychological aftermath most survivors face even in adulthood; give those who’ve suffered abuse hope that they can create fulfilling lives; and inspire people to learn about prevention so more children can grow up safe.
These nonprofit organizations do critical work: Child HELP Partnership, MaleSurvivor, Peaceful Hearts Foundation, Prevent Child Abuse and The Relationship Foundation.
