We’ve been eagerly anticipating US Dates for Mia Madre and they’ll begin Friday!
Brought to us by Music Box Films, Mia Madre is Nanni Moretti’s best work ever, a perfectly balanced, artfully told story about grief, loss, and self-reflection. Nothing maudlin here, and though it is at times achingly sad, it’s not a cheesy tear-jerker. Moretti’s script and Margherita Buy’s best actress award-winning performance as Margherita, a film director, put the viewer solidly into the story as observation turns to meditation. Buy’s character is the modern everyman; self-absorbed, impatient, and a bit removed from relationships in her life.
