Italy 2015 100 mins.

Anna (Juliet Binoche) sits alone in an old country house in Sicily. Her son Giuseppe has just died and there is nothing to do but mourn. When Jeanne (Lou de Laâge), her son’s girlfriend arrives—unaware of his passing—Anna chooses to withhold the truth, knowing that the secret must come out. As they wait and the days pass, they grow closer as the drama builds. A moving debut from Paolo Sorrentino’s (The Great Beauty) former assistant director.
