Why watch this film?
Interesting and sensitive work by director Josephine Decker ("You Were Light and Graceful") in this "Madeline's Madeline". With a curious title, the feature film tells the story of Madeline. An actress, she gets the role in a play to play the protagonist. The problem is that the main character wears a sweater like Madeline's; has a cat like Madeline's and holds a smoldering iron bar next to her mother's face, like Madeline. It's a copy of her on stage. From there, with an interesting and unexpected mix of documentary and surrealism, we see this character spiral into questions, putting the power of art at the center of the reflection. A movie with personality for those who like daring films in their proposal.
A theatre director's latest project takes on a life of its own when her young star takes her performance too seriously.
