21/22 Hop Film

While on a summer holiday, middle-aged university professor Leda (Olivia Colman, The Crown) becomes transfixed by Nina (Dakota Johnson), a young mother. The chance encounter turns into an obsession that triggers memories of motherhood, career turns and past loves. Soon, under the burning sun of the small coastal town, Leda's darkest impulses and hidden truths emerge. Maggie Gyllenhaal adapts Elena Ferrante's acclaimed novel, deftly channeling the book's emotional energy through a sensibility entirely her own. Shifting temporalities, wordless exchanges, furtive looks and tiny gestures gather momentum in a story that becomes a profound study of a woman's unconscious. Gyllenhaal enlists the sublime cinematography of Hélène Louvart and the brilliant cast, which also includes Jessie Buckley as the young Lena and Peter Sarsgaard as Nina's husband.
