Diane

2018 | Drama | 95 minutes | English

Info

Diane is  generous and thoughtful of others: she regularly visits her terminally ill cousin, Dottie, in the hospital, works in a soup kitchen feeding and nurturing the poor, brings casseroles of food to neighbors, and, most of all, deals with her mentally-disturbed son Brian. But aside from doing these good things, Diane is tortured over something she did many years ago that tore apart her family. The film is strongly enhanced by an amazing performance by the under-used extraordinary actress, Mary Kay Place. 

Cast
Mary Kay Place (Diane) / Jake Lacy (Brian) / Deirdre O’Connell (Dottie) / Andrea Martin (Bobbie, Diane’s best friend)

Mary Kay Place is a marvel, showing us the longing Diane can barely acknowledge to herself, and how her devotion to others is both rooted in genuine kindness and an effort to expiate a sin.

It’s a rarity and a real pleasure to find a movie that presents without condescension rural working-class people, especially women.
Peter Rainer

The Christian Science Monitor

Buoyed by a movie lover’s wish list of warmly familiar female faces, DIANE, the remarkable new film from the writer and director Kent Jones, is in part a meditation of one dying that feels wondrously alive. Each scene has its own specific energy and tone, conjured by a happy congruence of skillfully vivid acting, naturalistic conversations and a cinematographer, Wyatt Garfield, with a clear grasp of mood.
