2016 Movies: The Eyes of My Mother
The Eyes of My Mother is a horror film centering around a disturbed young woman who has locked up a man in her family’s barn.
The protagonist, named Francisca, had a childhood marked by trauma as her mother, a former surgeon, made her understand thoroughly human anatomy and thus, be not daunted by death. The encounter with the man awakens her deepest and darkest desires, which consume her every single moment.
The movie marks Nicolas Pesce’s directorial debut, who also wrote the script, and stars Kika Magalhaes in the leading role, Diana Agostini, Will Brill, Joey Curtis-Green, Olivia Boans, Paul Nazak, and Clara Wong.
Its world premiere took place at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and its release in US theaters is slated for December 2.
