2023 Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or Nominee
Twenty years after their notorious tabloid romance gripped the nation, married couple Grace (Julianne Moore) and Joe (Charles Melton) are visited by television star Elizabeth (Natalie Portman), who’s preparing to play Grace in an upcoming movie of their story. As Elizabeth digs for inspiration, the past begins to invade the present, boundaries are crossed and long forgotten feelings take centre stage.
May December has an ironic style, steady and cool with flashes of flamboyance. Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore are customarily brilliant, and biting, in Todd Haynes’ unnerving yet playful exploration of an American scandal.
