A harried filmmaker (Margherita Buy) tries to juggle the demands of her latest movie with her disruptive personal life. The star of her film, a bombastic American actor (John Turturro) imported for the production, makes nothing but headaches and her crew is close to mutiny. Away from the shoot, Marghertia tries to hold her life together as her mother’s illness progresses and her teenage daughter grows ever more distant. Italy/Italian. One hour, 47 minutes. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
