The movie "L'Attesa" will be released today at the Bill Cosford Cinema. Stunningly shot and deeply resonant, "L'Attesa" heralds the arrival of a talented new voice. With Sicily as his backdrop, Piero Messina (assistant director on Paolo Sorrentino's "The Great Beauty") navigates a range of emotions in telling the strange, irresistible story of the relationship between two women from different generations. Academy Award®-winner Juliette Binoche stars as Anna, who is meeting her son Giuseppe's French girlfriend, Jeanne (Lou de Laâge), in the lead up to Easter festivities. Young and enchanting, Jeanne arrived with excitement before Giuseppe, whose continued delays and lack of presence cast a dark, mysterious shadow over the household. Why is Giuseppe not here, and when will he appear? As Anna and Jeanne wait, they grow closer than either imagined they would, despite the secrets they're harboring from one another. "L'Attesa" is not rated, has a run time of 110 minutes and is in Italian and French.
