Synopsis

Part-time punk singer Irene McCabey moonlights as full-time harbinger of chaos - and her life in Austin is crumbling as a result. When her
ex-girlfriend moves to kick her out of their band, Irene receives big news:  an estranged grandfather has bequeathed to her a dilapidated house
across the country in Pittsburgh.  Stalling in the Steel City to forget her woes, Irene enlists a long-lost cousin to assist in a drunken renovation project.  As the newfound relatives put their mark on the forgotten family home, cracks in the wild-child's hardened facade begin to show, but when
an unexpected visitor comes knocking, Irene must choose between her newfound domestic side and her unquenchable desire for self-destruction.

Press

"A soul and body baring performance."
- Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

"Jagged-edged. A raggedy ode to the DIY ethos."
-Daniel M. Gold, The New York Times 

"This remarkable feature follows Irene McCabey, one of the most polarizing, frustrating, childish and compelling protagonists to grace indie screens in quite sometime."
-Karen Kemmerle, Tribecafilm.com

"The majestic center of gravity of “Homemakers” is the epically charismatic McKeon, lavishly unleashed and yet physically focused, never floundering. She—they?—Irene and McKeon are fucking amazing and fucking terrifying, at the risk of vast understatement."
-Ray Pride, New City 
 
"The film is essentially one of female empowerment. Rachel McKeon has vividly captured her angst and the roiling chaos that erupts."
- Emma Tilden, Bust Magazine
 

“A warm and funny film, reminding us that as great as it feels to be free and independent."
- Kevin Blumeyer, Under the Gun

"Flinches from nothing. A brave and original film."
- Joe Blessing, Film Buddy 

“A visual feast of creation and destruction.” 
- Adam Ruhl, Pop Culture Beast   

"A fascinating piece of cinema...a more comedic take on the punk rock lifestyle while simultaneously keeping things genuine."
-Blair Hoyle, Way Too Indie
