Description

Making his narrative feature debut, legendary film critic and cinephile Kent Jones delivers a richly atmospheric drama you won’t soon forget. Diane is the story of a widowed baby-boomer who faithfully devotes her life to serving the needs of others. She spends her days serving soup at a food kitchen, consoling her ailing friends, and desperately attempting to forge a meaningful relationship with her opioid-addicted son (Jake Lacy). As her friends pass away, Diane’s altruistic world begins to crumble, forcing her to reconcile her current life with past regrets, and ultimately come to grips with her own mortality. Taking home Tribeca's top prize for US Narrative Feature, Diane is filled with warmth and humanity, anchored by a quietly phenomenal performance from Mary Kay Place that makes Diane's struggles all the more relatable and profound. In Person: Director Kent Jones (Wed).
