For the month of April, I’m focusing on debut feature films by women directors. I’m kicking off the series with Joanna Hogg’s 2007 debut film, “Unrelated.” The film explores the emotional crisis of a woman who escapes ostensible marriage problems by going on a vacation in Italy with a friend. It’s a subtle but devastating look at loneliness, ageing, and disconnection. There are spoilers in this episode.
Full show notes:
