Directed by Chantal Akerman | 1986

With Delphine Seyrig, Coralie Seyrig

Akerman’s rarely screened adaptation of Rose Leiman Goldemberg’s off-Broadway play, based on Sylvia Plath’s letters to her mother, is a compelling example of stage-to-film transcription. Enacted by Jeanne Dielman star Delphine Seyrig and her niece Coralie Seyrig, this exposition of one of the director’s key themes—the bond between mother and daughter—is rich with personal resonance.
