While the official Cannes Film Festival lineup won’t be revealed for a couple of weeks yet, one movie you can probably bet on making the lineup is “Mia Madre.” It’s the latest from Nanni Moretti, who took home the Palme d’Or in 2001 for “The Son’s Room,” and has been regular fixture on the Croisette since, with movies like “The Caiman” and “We Have A Pope.” And today the first trailer for “Mia Madre” has arrived, though you may want to brush up on your Italian.
Margherita Buy, John Turturro, and Moretti himself star in the film about a movie director in crisis trying to keep it together in the middle of a shoot with a famous American actor. The movie made our The 20 Most Anticipated Foreign Films Of 2015 list. Here’s the official synopsis:
Margherita is a director shooting a film with the famous American actor, Barry Huggins, who is quite a character on set. Away from the set, Margherita tries to hold her life together while feeling powerless when facing her mother’s illness and her daughter’s adolescence.
No release date or American distributor yet for the film. Watch below. [Repubblica]
