Mouthpiece is a 2018 drama movie directed by Patricia Rozema starring Norah Sadava and Amy Nostbakken. The movie is based on a play of the same name by Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava. The story follows two women, Cassandra and Jules, who come from very different backgrounds but share the same unspoken thoughts and emotions. Cassandra (Norah Sadava) is a struggling writer who is stuck in a creative rut. She is dealing with the sudden death of her mother and the overwhelming pressure to write a eulogy that captures her mother's essence. On the night before the funeral, Cassandra goes out with her best friend and has too much to drink. In a drunken frenzy, she ends up wandering the streets of Toronto where she meets Jules (Amy Nostbakken), a confident and carefree woman who is everything that Cassandra is not.

Jules takes Cassandra under her wing and the two women spend an adventurous night together. As they talk and bond, it becomes clear that they share a deep connection. They both struggle with the expectations society places on women, especially when it comes to their bodies, sexuality, and relationships.

Cassandra and Jules take turns speaking directly to the camera, giving the audience a glimpse into their innermost thoughts and struggles. These monologues are powerful and raw, revealing the fears and insecurities that the two women carry with them. They offer a painful and honest look at what it means to be a woman in today's society, touching on topics like sexual assault, body image, motherhood, and career aspirations.

What makes Mouthpiece so unique is the way it blends two different styles of storytelling. Cassandra and Jules' monologues are interspersed with scenes of the two women acting out their emotions, often in creative and surreal ways. These scenes are visually stunning, with the camera work and lighting creating a dreamlike atmosphere.

Another standout aspect of the film is the performances by Norah Sadava and Amy Nostbakken, who also co-wrote the play the film is based on. The two women have incredible chemistry, portraying the complicated relationship between Cassandra and Jules with nuance and depth. They are also skilled physical performers, conveying emotion through their movements and gestures.

Mouthpiece is not always an easy watch. At times, the film is heavy with emotion, grappling with difficult topics like death and sexual trauma. But it's also a deeply moving and personal work of art that explores what it means to be a woman in modern society. It's a film that demands to be seen and heard.

Mouthpiece is a 2019 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.4 and a MetaScore of 73.
