Location: Redstone Theater
With Kent Jones in person
Dir. Kent Jones. 2018, 95 mins. DCP. With Mary Kay Place, Jake Lacy, Andrea Martin, Estelle Parsons, Deirdre O’Connell. For Diane (Mary Kay Place), everyone else comes first. Generous but with little patience for self-pity, she spends her days checking in on sick friends, volunteering at her local soup kitchen, and trying valiantly to save her troubled, drug-addicted adult son (Jake Lacy) from himself. But beneath her relentless routine of self-sacrifice, Diane is fighting a desperate internal battle, haunted by a past she can’t forget, which threatens to tear her increasingly chaotic world apart. Built around an extraordinary, fearless performance from Mary Kay Place, the narrative debut from Kent Jones (Hitchcock/Truffaut) is a profound, beautifully human portrait of a woman rifling through the wreckage of her life in search of redemption.
