Case Study: Frankie
Join writer/director Ira Sachs for an enlightening conversation covering the making of "Frankie", its world premiere in Cannes and anticipated US release, international influences, and his experience shooting in IFP Weeks host country of Portugal. Unfolding over the course of a late summer’s day in the fabled resort town of Sintra, Portugal, "Frankie" (starring Isabelle Huppert, Greg Kinnear, Marisa Tomei, and Jérémie Renier) follows three generations who have gathered for a vacation organized by the family matriarch. In this fairy tale setting, husbands and wives, parents and children, friends and lovers, stirred by their romantic impulses — discover the cracks between them, as well as an unexpected depth of feeling.
