    • Nicole Stevens (Tessa Thompson), a hardworking, single woman who lives with and cares for her aging mother (Whoopi Goldberg) and works part-time at a local jail, gets the chance to prove herself when she is tasked with accompanying Joan Anderson, a free-spirited and unruly prisoner, on an emergency furlough to visit Anderson's dying mother. Their 36-hour journey goes hilariously - and also movingly - awry, as the two woman become, against all odds, the unlikeliest of friends. With a supporting cast that includes Academy Award winner Anna Paquin, Edgar Ramirez, La La Anthony and Michael Chernus, Furlough is a trip not to be missed.
