Starring Willem Dafoe, Cristina Chiriac, Anna Ferrara
Rental: $12.00 (5 day streaming period)
Once, American director Tommaso (Willem Dafoe) lived a life marked by substance abuse, womanizing, and destructiveness. Now, he’s sober, living a serene life with his young wife and daughter in Rome—yet old anxieties and volatile impulses still simmer beneath the surface. Shifting between fantasy and reality, Abel Ferrara’s semi-autobiographical drama is a wise, poignant portrait of a man making peace with himself.
