Bleeding Heart stars Jessica Biel and Zosia Mamet as biological sisters who meet as adults. One is a very together yoga instructor, the other is a sex worker in an abusive relationship. The new connection between them leads to big changes in both their lives.
The Truth about Emanuel is a surreal film, written and directed by Francesca Gregorini. I watched it all with interest, so I obviously found it worth watching. It isn’t a great film, but it drags you into its unhinged world. It’s about madness and grief, wounded healers and magic.
