There are three women in the Langley household: Vivien (Karen Young), the mother, is caught between a fierce independence and an almost agoraphobic attachment to home; seductive and confident Mel (Portia Reiners) is a 19-year-old mirror image of her mother; Maura (Mamie Gummer), 22, is alienated, afraid and unable to pinpoint her place in the world. They live together in a seemingly close household, yet each is very much alone. The once man-of-the-house, Martin (Reed Birney), left long ago to pursue a new way of life, but keeps a shadow presence: he maintains a comfortable erotic tie to his ex-wife and a tentative relationship with Mel. Maura has all but shunned him. The family’s status quo explodes when Jeff (Jonathan Groff) walks into their combustible, dysfunctional world.
“ ‘Twelve Thirty’ is sexy and big-hearted and really gets under your skin. Karen Young's high-risk performance is so amazing! It's a vivid, potent, strange film, not like anything else. It confirms my sense that in terms of craft, command, narrative and thematic ambition, and a wide range of European and American influences, Lipsky is an utterly distinctive figure.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com
