Drama, Female Director(s), Female Screenwriter(s)
Vittoria, a shy 10-year-old girl, spends the summer on the windswept Sardinian coast with her loving-but-overprotective mother Tina (Valeria Golino). Vittoria begins to suspect that the local party girl Angelica (Alba Rohrwacher) is her actual birth mother, a revelation that upsets her innocent childhood existence. When financial difficulties force Angelica to leave town, she asks Tina if she can spend some time with Vittoria before she goes. Tina reluctantly agrees, setting off a dramatic summer during which the young Vittoria finds herself torn between two imperfect mothers.

Director Laura Bispuri’s return to Tribeca—three years after her Sworn Virgin took home the festival’s Nora Award for best female director—is a performance powerhouse, an intimate three-hander about the bonds we make, break, and are born with, set against a dramatic Sardinian landscape.

—Cara Cusumano
