Maya Dardel stars a gravel-voiced Lena Olin as the title character in what looks to be the portrait of an unusual older woman.
Here’s the synopsis of the film: “The story of the final weeks leading to the ambiguous disappearance of Maya Dardel, an internationally respected poet and novelist, who lived until 2016 in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. Maya announces on National Public Radio that she intends to end her life and that young male writers may compete to become executor of her estate. Men drive up the mountain and are challenged intellectually, emotionally, erotically, until one of them begins to fathom Maya’s end game.”
Besides what promises to be a brilliant performance from Lena Olin, the film includes Rosanna Arquette, Nathan Keyes, Alexander Koch, Jordan Gavaris, and Chris Voss.
Zachary Cotler and Magdalena Zyzak share both the writing and directing credits for Maya Dardel. The film will be in theaters and On Demand in November 2017.
