This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re featuring a preview of the ninth Art of the Real, our annual festival highlighting the world’s most vital and innovative voices in nonfiction and hybrid filmmaking, with programmers Dennis Lim, Rachael Rakes, Dan Sullivan, and Almudena Escobar López. Art of the Real is now in full swing and playing through April 7! Get tickets here.
We’re also featuring a Q&A from a recent Patron event with director Eva Husson and star Odessa Young on their most recent film, Mothering Sunday.
On a warm spring day in 1924, house maid and foundling Jane Fairchild, played by Odessa Young, finds herself alone on Mother’s Day. Her employers, Mr. and Mrs. Niven (Colin Firth and Olivia Colman), are out and she has the rare chance to spend quality time with her secret lover. Paul (Josh O’Connor) is the boy from the manor house near by, Jane’s long-term love despite the fact that he’s engaged to be married to another woman, a childhood friend and daughter of his parents’ friends. But events that neither can foresee will change the course of Jane’s life forever. Mothering Sunday is now streaming and playing in theaters.
