Mia Madre

Director: Nanni Moretti • Italy, France

John Turturro provides madcap comic relief as a self-important American actor in master filmmaker Nanni Moretti’s latest personal tour de force. An overworked director tries to complete her new movie—a political statement about factory workers—while caring for her much-beloved mother, who lies dying in the hospital. Real life and art clash violently in this moving personal drama about the heavy cost of artistic integrity.
