Memory / Mexico & USA/ 2023/ Dir: Michel Franco / 100 Min / Current Rotten Tomatoes Score: 85%
Sylvia (Jessica Chastain) is a social worker who leads a simple and structured life. This is blown open when Saul (Peter Sarsgaard) follows her home from their high school reunion. Their surprise encounter will profoundly impact both of them as they open the door to the past.
“Franco radically turns the rudder to dive us into a story about an impossible love with unpredictable consequences, supported by stupendous performances by Chastain and Sarsgaard.” - Los Angeles Times
“The whole film is an elegant inquiry into what happens when memory fails or when it just hurts so much it’s easier to try and forget. This portrait of broken people doing their best is an oblique and beautiful thing.” - Film Threat
