Spotlight on our cinema
ONTARIO, United States, Canada | 75 minutes | 2019
Anne is a lonely young daycare worker who has trouble following the rules and connecting with others. Uncompromising and prone to excess, she’s complex and unknowable, yet curiously appealing through all her troubles and hesitations. Director Radwanski follows up on the singular approach he crafted in Tower (2012) and How Heavy This Hammer (2015) with this delicately layered, unrelenting portrait of a fragile woman who’s utterly of our times. Deragh Campbell, her worried face in extreme close-up, delivers an edgy performance shot through with subtle tension.Q&A with Kazik Radwanski on October 20thIn collaboration with Cinécole“Campbell’s riveting performance as a woman on the verge of vertigo is a sight to behold.” Toronto Star
