A family is reunited for a celebration during which secrets are steadily unearthed. It’s a conceit familiar from films as diverse as Thomas Vinterberg’s Festen, Ben Wheatley’s Happy New Year, Colin Burstead or Lulu Wang’s The Farewell. Yet writer-director Laura Bispuri gives it an unusual twist in her third feature.

French cinema icon Dominque Sanda (The Conformist, 1900) plays matriarch Nena, who on the occasion of her birthday welcomes her adult children and grandchildren back to her seaside home.
