Diane (2019, D: Kent Jones) S: Mary Kay Place





Opening in theaters and VOD March 29th

For Diane (Mary Kay Place), everyone else comes first. Generous but with little patience for self-pity, she spends her days checking in on sick friends, volunteering at her local soup kitchen, and trying valiantly to save her troubled, drug-addicted adult son (Jake Lacy) from himself. But beneath her relentless routine of self-sacrifice, Diane is fighting a desperate internal battle, haunted by a past she can’t forget and which threatens to tear her increasingly chaotic world apart. Built around an extraordinary, fearless performance from Mary Kay Place, the narrative debut from Kent Jones is a profound, beautifully human portrait of a woman rifling through the wreckage of her life in search of redemption.

Directed by: Kent Jones
Starring: Mary Kay Place, Jake Lacy, Andrea Martin, Estelle Parsons, Deirdre O'Connell, Joyce Van Patten, Phyllis Somerville, Glynnis O'Connor, Paul McIsaac

Compelling title. Makes you wanna run right out.

I ran right out for those as well.

This looks okay, but I've never liked Mary Kay Place in most of what she's done.

Most of your examples are not very good examples. This has a title that says nothing.

Elizabeth and Alexander are about a couple of the most famous humans in world history.

Rebecca and Carie were both very popular books. If they hadn’t been based on popular books they would have never been released with those titles. Same with Hugo. Same with Harvey. That was a hugely popular play.

Stuff like Ray and Lenny were very famous celebs. The marketing made sure you immediately recognized who they were talking about.

And Rocky is a strong name. It tells you the guy’s a rock.

This is Diane.

Cool. Or you could watch the movie instead of threadcrapping.
