Taylor Schilling exchanges the close confines of "Orange Is the New Black"’s women’s prison for the sweeping vistas of the west coast of Ireland in Wiebke von Carolsfeld’s intimate and appealing drama. Abbey (Schilling) is a Canadian woman living with an Irish ex-professor, Dermot (the ever-fine Aidan Quinn) when she discovers she’s pregnant. Unsure whether to have the baby — something Dermot definitely does not want — and wary of her own family’s less-than-ideal past, she returns to Montreal to visit her alcoholic father (Michael Ironside) and come to some decisions about her future.

Based on Aislinn Hunter’s lauded novel of the same name, "Stay" delivers a nuanced psychological portrait of a young woman facing some difficult life choices, but it does so with a charm and a sense of romance rarely seen on screen these days. Schilling and Quinn are both superb — their characters are both three-dimensional and utterly believable — while von Carolsfeld’s refined script and deft direction provide a firm anchor for the actors’ outstanding work.
