Emanuel, an acerbic but sensitive teen, lives with her father and stepmother. She’s on the verge of another birthday—a day she has never cared for since her mother died giving birth to her—when the mysterious Linda, a young and hip mother, moves in next door. Intrigued by Linda’s striking resemblance to her late mother, Emanuel begins to babysit for Linda’s newborn daughter. As Emanuel and Linda spend more time together, they develop a bond that becomes deeply entwined in a surprising secret Linda harbors.

Film Reviews

Truly, Gregorini’s made an extraordinary film- with perfect performances, dazzling visuals, and a haunting musical score by Nathan Larson. Again- it’s not for everyone, and it’s far from conventional. But- if you go in with an open mind, and are anxious to soak up something a little different, this is a gem. If there’s any justice, this one will get a lot of attention. At any rate, expect to be seeing a lot of Kaya Scodelario.
