May December

Watch trailer

With psychological layers and blurry lines, Todd Haynes' new film is a bold and beautiful satire. Natalie Portman plays Elizabeth — an actress who will spend time with Gracie (Julianne Moore) and her family in preparation for a new film. After a scandal many years ago that the family has overcome, Gracie hopes Elizabeth's portrayal of her will be more favourable than the earlier sensational material based on her life.

Actress Elizabeth Berry arrives in Savannah, Georgia to get to know Gracie – a woman she will be playing in an upcoming independent film. 20 years ago Gracie went to prison after having an affair with a 12-year-old boy. It became a national scandal. That boy was Joe, who now is 36, and against all odds, he and Gracie are still a couple. They have allowed Elizabeth to visit them and their children for a while, in research and preparation for the movie. Soon not only the personalities of Gracie and Elizabeth are blending into each other, but the family constellation inside the house (purchased with money from a tabloid TV show) seems claustrophobic and uneasy.

It's been a while since Todd Haynes has channeled his inspiration from soap operas and 1950s melodramas as remarkable as he's doing in May December. This is a provocative, satirical drama that toys with conventions and expectations, with two stunning performances from Portman and Moore.
