Date & Time
"Abel Ferrara’s first dramatic feature since 2014’s Pasolini reunites the filmmaker and his frequent collaborator Willem Dafoe in the story of a American artist living in Rome with his young European wife Nikki (Christina Chiriac, Mr. Ferrara’s partner in life) and their 3-year old daughter Dee Dee (Anna Ferrara).
Tommaso -a Buddhist with active visions of the passion of the Christ; an ex-addict in recovery; and still a foreigner in Rome- grapples with the ghosts of his former life and the demands of the present one, as the film slyly dances between the real world and his imagination.
A deeply personal tale of a man’s search for redemption and of an artist’s creative process, Tommaso is based on Ferrara’s own reality. The director is portrayed by Dafoe, in a performance that is both transformative and moving and that, in its depth, brings to mind the actor/director relationship between Antonio Banderas and Pedro Almodovar in last year’s Pain and Glory."
