In Theatres: Mia Madre

Selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015, Mia Madre is finally released to Canadian audiences. Moretti elegantly approaches the subject of death and family (and existential crises). Brilliantly acted and directed, the film is varied and layered.

Mia Madre is worth seeing in theatres. It is as profoundly sad as it is hopeful (and the soundtrack is pretty great too)! I leave you with the amazing Arvo Pärt.
