Dir: Todd Haynes | USA | 2023 | 113 mins
Cast | Julianne Moore, Natalie Portman, Charles Melton
Julianne Moore and Natalie Portman star in the intoxicating new psychodrama from Todd Haynes (Carol, Far From Heaven, Velvet Goldmine, Safe).
At 36, Gracie ( Moore) had an affair with 13-year-old schoolboy Joe, earning herself a jail sentence and the collective ire of the whole country. 20-plus years and three children later, however, Gracie and Joe (Charles Melton) are still together. But when Hollywood actress Elizabeth (Portman) visits them to research her role as Gracie in a film about their past, they buckle under the pressure, and troubling similarities and differences between Elizabeth and Gracie begin to ebb and flow.
A thrillingly campy, seductive and discomfiting watch, loosely inspired by the real-life story of Mary Kay Letourneau, May December explores identity, authenticity, and the impossibility of fully understanding another person.
