Luca Guadagnino's 'The Staggering Girl' to Premiere at Cannes

Luca Guadagnino's new project, The Staggering Girl will premiere at 2019 Cannes Film Festival. The international star studded cast includes Julianne Moore, Mia Goth, KiKi Layne, Alba Rohrwacher, Marthe Keller and Kyle MacLachlan.

According to Variety, the short film portrays different chapters in a woman’s life through the prism of her relationship with her mother. Julianne Moore plays Francesca, an Italian-American writer who lives in New York and must return to Rome – and, by extension, her childhood – to retrieve her aging mother, a painter played at different ages by Keller and Goth. Layne plays the spark that triggers the stream of consciousness in Francesca, while Rohrwacher plays a grande dame at a party.

The film will be shown in the program, Quinzaine des Réalisateurs - Courts & Moyens Métrages. The  Cannes Film Festival runs May 14th - 25th, 2019. Click here for more information.
