| Inspiring and wrenching both!
The film shares the back story of a creative force--Irene Fornes--but is brought to you the lens of a deep friendship with the filmmaker Michelle Memran as they both struggle through what it means to loose your memory and what you can and can't hold onto. Hopefully will be streaming soon as it's a lovely lovely film!
