NARRATIVE FEATURE | 99 MIN | 2011

MARIA MY LOVE

Ana is a young woman trying to reimagine her life after her mother's death during the course of one California spring. Filled with resentment over her father's mistakes, Ana feels disconnected from herself and everyone around her. Swept up by new romance and a warm reunion with her half-sister, Ana is so taken by the newfound support and love in her life that she sets out to find someone—anyone other than herself—to help. She finds a volunteer project in Maria, a reclusive hoarder who has alienated her own family with her compulsive behavior. As the two become unlikely friends and confidantes, Ana finds herself in an emotionally complex relationship that reveals some uncomfortable truths about herself.

First-time writer/director Jasmine McGlade Chazelle (producer of Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench, TFF '09) returns to the Festival with a vivid and authentic portrait of grief through a young woman's journey to find her own way, inspired by supporting actress Lauren Fales' life. Judy Marte (Raising Victor Vargas) delivers a naturalistic performance as Ana and strikes chemistry with two-time Golden Globe winner and Academy Award® nominee Karen Black as Maria.
