Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Hold Me Tight” showing Oct. 7-Oct. 13 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“Hold Me Tight” is nominated for two César Awards (France’s equivalent of the Academy Award) including Best Actress for Vicky Krieps and Best Adapted Screenplay.
In “Hold Me Tight”, Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread, Bergman Island) gives another riveting performance as Clarisse, a woman on the run from her family for reasons that aren’t immediately clear.
Widely renowned as one of France’s great contemporary actors and also known for his equally impressive work behind the camera, Mathieu Amalric’s sixth feature as director is his most ambitious to date.
This virtuosic, daringly fluid portrait of a woman in crisis alternates between Clarisse’s adventures on the road and scenes of her abandoned husband Marc (Arieh Worthalter) as he struggles to take care of their children at home.
Amalric’s film keeps viewers uncertain as to the reality of what they’re seeing until the final moments of this moving, unpredictable, and richly rewarding family drama.
