MOUTHPIECE
2018, 91 min, Canada, Dir: Patricia Rozema

Faced with the sudden death of her mother and wrestling with the responsibility of delivering the eulogy, aspiring writer Cassandra finds solace in her imagination and in her memory, which rapidly become indistinguishable. As the funeral service approaches, Cassandra’s conflicted, complex reflections on her mother intensify and push her life in new and unexpected directions. Moving back and forth in time, the film’s multifaceted narrative probes the intimacies and emotional complexities of how we remember, what we remember and why we remember. Based on the award-winning play staged to acclaim at UCLA last month (playwrights Norah Sadava and Amy Nostbakken co-star in the film as two “versions” of Cassandra), MOUTHPIECE is an inventive, engaging narrative of personal rebirth from the acclaimed director of I’VE HEARD THE MERMAIDS SINGING, MANSFIELD PARK and INTO THE FOREST. "A thoughtful interrogation of modern womanhood, leavened by gallows humour." - Scott Tobias, Variety.
