Still image from the film Mia Madre
In this touching and highly personal new film from the Italian master filmmaker Nanni Moretti (The Son’s Room, We Have a Pope), a harried filmmaker tries to juggle the demands of her latest movie with a personal life in shambles. The star of her film, a bombastic American actor (John Turturro) imported for the production, presents nothing but headaches and her crew is close to mutiny. Away from the shoot, she tries to hold her life together as her mother’s illness progresses and her teenage daughter grows ever more distant. A comedy-drama imbued with a quiet sense of grief, Moretti illuminates the poignancy of human imperfection that is revealed when real life and art intersect. In Italian, English, and French with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
