WANDER DARKLY World Cinema

WANDER DARKLY

Following the film, AFI FEST Senior Programmer Claudia Puig leads a conversation with director Tara Miele and actor Sienna Miller.

How would you regard the arc of a romance if you could revisit it? This visually stunning, moving and time-bending drama is told assuredly by director Tara Miele. The viewer is rewarded with an exploration of love, memory, regret, loss and death and a profound examination of the complexity of relationships. Adrienne (Sienna Miller) and Matteo (Diego Luna) have a new baby and are about to become homeowners. Their chemistry is palpable, but distrust and uncertainty are tearing them apart. A traumatic event intervenes, and their story takes a surreal and fascinating turn. Each traces the history of their relationship, commenting as they relive events from their past from differing perspectives. Both lead actors give magnificent, emotionally layered performances. The film takes intriguing risks that intensify its profound emotional heft.
