Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Monica” showing May 26-June 1 at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre.
“Monica” stars Trace Lysette, Academy Award-nominee Patricia Clarkson, Emily Browning, Joshua Close and Adriana Barraza.
“Monica” is an intimate portrait of a woman who returns home after a long absence to confront the wounds of her past.
Reconnecting with her mother (Patricia Clarkson) and the rest of her family for the first time since leaving as a teenager, Monica (Trace Lysette) embarks on a path of healing and acceptance.
The film delves into Monica’s internal world and state of mind, her pain and fears, her needs and desires, to explore the universal themes of abandonment and forgiveness.
