The latest movie by Todd Haynes, director of Carol and Far from Heaven, is a magical story about fathers and sons, which takes place in the two parallel worlds—the era of silent movies and New York of the 1970s, with its liberalization and counter-culture.
USA, 1927. Young girl Rose runs away from her home to go to New York and to find her mythical mother —a famous Hollywood actress (Julianne Moore), whom she worships. At the same time her coeval Ben, who lives in America in 1977, leaves his house in the North of the country to go to New York in search of his father. The two epochs and the two stories unfold in parallel and at the same time they intervene, forming an adventure puzzle about childhood and friendship, melancholy and nostalgia, uncomfortable reality and the power of imagination. The picture premiered at the 70th Cannes Film Festival.
