A new film depicting dementia is coming to UK screens in February. It stars Academy Award winner Jessica Chastain and Venice Film Festival Best Actor winner Peter Sarsgaard, who portrays a man living with young onset dementia.
Described as an unconventional love story, the film shows Sylvia (Jessica Chastain) as a social worker who leads a simple and structured life until she is followed home from a high school reunion by Saul (Peter Sarsgaard). This surprise encounter profoundly impacts both characters as they explore the past.
Founders of Bohemia Media, Phil Hunt and Lucy Fenton, who are distributing this film said:
“We are delighted to be sharing this superbly acted and compassionately told story, by Mexican film-maker Michel Franco. Exploring the vulnerability of our memories and the desire for human connection in spite of traumatic history, MEMORY is a welcome addition to our slate of films which share experiences from underrepresented and marginalised voices.”
