In this remarkable adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s eponymous novel – which won her the Best screenplay award at the Venice Film Festival – Maggie Gyllenhaal offers a daring psychological drama that challenges conventional thinking about motherhood. Alone on a seaside vacation, Leda (Olivia Colman) becomes consumed with a young mother and daughter as she watches them on the beach. Unnerved by their compelling relationship, Leda is overwhelmed by her own memories of the terror, confusion and intensity of early motherhood. An impulsive act shocks her into the strange and ominous world of her own mind, where she is forced to face the choices she made as a young mother.
