Olivier Assayas and Greta Gerwig in conversation following the screening.
One of Oliver Assayas’s most potent meetings of head and heart, Clean is both the smartest movie ever made about the buying and selling of the burnout rock n’ roll myth and a tough, intimate story about a woman’s rugged, step-by-step redemption. Maggie Cheung was the first Asian actress to win Best Actress at Cannes for her trilingual performance as the despised widow of a beloved OD’d rocker who has to rediscover herself as a mother and get square with the family of the deceased (Nick Nolte, creaky and very human).
Clean is screening as part of the series: Olivier Assayas's International Trilogy.
