Join HIFF and our special guest, the masterful Edie Falco, as we celebrate 1999’s indie hit JUDY BERLIN. Described by The New York Times as “… the rare movie in which the pauses, silences and things that remain unsaid by the characters are as eloquent as anything that comes out of their mouths.”
Curious and eccentric in a town full of likable defeatists, Judy Berlin (Edie Falco) is on the verge of a life change that will affect everyone around her. There’s a mournfulness permeating this impressive feature debut (from writer/director Eric Mendelsohn) that is anything but sad. Rather, this is the kind of American independent film that springs fully formed from a probing, painterly, benevolent mind and leaves audiences holding their collective breath in wonderment, as simple lives are revealed to be humming with profound human complexity.
