Trace Lysette and Patricia Clarkson co-star in Italian filmmaker Andrea Pallaoro’s (Hannah) spare, sensitive drama about a trans woman who returns home to care for her estranged mother.

At a young age, Monica (Lysette) was kicked out of her home by her mother Eugenia (Clarkson). Many years later the opportunty to recconnect with Eugenia presents itself when her sister-in-law Laura (Emily Browning) invites Monica home. Ailing and frail her mother no longer knows who Monica is.

Screened at the Venice Film Festival this year, where Lysette received a standing ovation for her restrained, magnetic performance, Monica is a beautifully realised, slow-burn drama depicting two characters mired in layers of complicated feeling as they find their way toward reconciliation.
