In Georgian filmmaker Ana Urushadze’s gripping and bleakly comic feature debut, Manana, a 50-year-old Tbilisi mother abandons her duties as a wife and mother to pursue an obsessive and hermetic life of writing poetry. In a performance of coiled fear and rage that recalls the best of Isabelle Huppert, Nata Murvanidze plunges into Manana‘s feverish imagination. SCARY MOTHER, which won awards at film festivals around the world, is a haunting, singular new vision.
