|L’Attesa – Trailer
Stunningly shot and deeply resonant, Lâ€™ATTESA heralds the arrival of a talented new voice. With Sicily as his backdrop, Piero Messina (assistant director on Paolo Sorrentinoâ€™s THE GREAT BEAUTY) navigates a range of emotions in telling the strange, irresistible story of the relationship between two women from different generations. Academy AwardÂ®-winner Juliette Binoche stars as Anna, who is meeting her son Giuseppeâ€™s French girlfriend, Jeanne (Lou de LaÃ¢ge), in the lead up to Easter festivities. Young and enchanting, Jeanne arrived with excitement before Giuseppe, whose continued delays and lack of presence cast a dark, mysterious shadow over the household. Why is Giuseppe not here, and when will he appear? As Anna and Jeanne wait, they grow closer than either imagined they would, despite the secrets theyâ€™re harboring from one another.
