Clara (Spanish superstar Penélope Cruz) and Felice have just moved into a new apartment with their three children. The marriage is over, but divorce is unthinkable
Director Emanuele Crialese draws on his own childhood—he announced he was a trans man at the film’s Venice Film Festival premiere last year—to fashion a heartfelt tale.
‘Cruz holds the film together like a force of gravity, and has a wonderful authentic chemistry with all the kids who play her children here, especially Giuliani. With her fierce, tomboy haircut and steady gaze, the young actor offers a commanding presence throughout.’—Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter
