DIANE
2018, IFC Films, 95 min, Dir: Kent Jones

For Diane (Mary Kay Place), everyone else comes first. Generous but with little patience for self-pity, she spends her days checking in on sick friends, volunteering at her local soup kitchen and trying valiantly to save her troubled, drug-addicted adult son (Jake Lacy) from himself. But beneath her relentless routine of self-sacrifice, Diane is fighting a desperate internal battle, haunted by a past she can’t forget, which threatens to tear apart her increasingly chaotic world. Built around an extraordinary, fearless performance from Mary Kay Place, the narrative debut from Kent Jones (HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT) is a profound, beautifully human portrait of a woman rifling through the wreckage of her life in search of redemption.
