Director Ira Sachs (LOVE IS STRANGE, LITTLE MEN) transplants his usual New York setting for Sintra, Portugal, where the family of Frankie (Isabelle Huppert), an aging actress, is brought together for a family holiday. As Frankie prepares to tell her family of a recent diagnosis, three generations convene amongst the gardens, villas, and beaches of the fabled coastal town over the course of a single October day. Working with a stellar ensemble cast, including Marisa Tomei, Brendan Gleeson, and Greg Kinnear, Sachs’ latest tenderly observed character drama is an affecting look at one family’s turning point.
