Making Plans for Lena
DIRECTOR: CHRISTOPHE HONORé
CAST: CHIARA MASTROIANNI, MARINA FOïS, MARIE-CHRISTINE BARRAULT, LOUIS GARREL
Christophe Honoré in person
Chiara Mastroianni, magnificent in the title role of an overwhelmed single mother being slowly overtaken by a persecution complex, locks horns with her parents, her ex-husband, and her siblings in Honoré’s fraught, feisty family drama, unfolding in an atmosphere of bourgeois material comfort and emotional terrorism. A peerless supporting cast, including My Night at Maud’s Marie Christine Barrault and Louis Garrel, anchor this riveting melodrama by New Wave heir Honoré, who will present the screening in person.
