In My Name Is Lucy Barton, Linney plays Lucy Barton, a woman who wakes after an operation to find—much to her surprise—her mother at the foot of her bed. They haven’t seen each other in years. During the days-long visit, Lucy tries to understand her past, works to come to terms with her family, and begins to find herself as a writer.

My Name Is Lucy Barton was previously seen in London. The original audiobook edition of Strout's novel is narrated by Kimberly Farr.
