Coming to #HCAF15: “A Woman Like Me”, Directed by Elizabeth Giamatti and Alex Sichel, starring Lili Taylor.
A Woman Like Me is a hybrid documentary that interweaves the real story of director Alex Sichel, diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2011, with the ﬁctional story of Anna Seashell (Lili Taylor), who struggles to ﬁnd the glass half full when faced with the same diagnosis. The ﬁlm follows Alex as she uses her craft to explore what is foremost on her mind while confronting a terminal disease: parenting, marriage, faith, life, and death. When we are stuck between a rock and hard place, can our imagination get us out?
15 days until the full line up is released.
