#TIFF18: “MOUTHPIECE” REVIEW
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
MOUTHPIECE is the newest Film from Canadian Director Patricia Rozema and is adapted from the two-woman Play by Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava. It follows Cassandra (Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava) in the aftermath of her mother’s death and her struggle coming to terms with her life and the life of her mother. It will have its World Premiere in the Special Presentations Programme at TIFF.
It’s rare to see the whole facet of what it means to be a female entirely laid out in a Film but the combination of Rozema, Nostbakken and Sadava do that. This Film is a touching exploration of how women from multiple generations get socialized. Not only that, but how people think of them and how they think about themselves.
MOUTHPIECE screens Thursday, September 6 at 9:15 PM at Winter Garden Theatre, Friday, September 7 at 12:45 PM at TIFF Bell Lightbox 1 and Saturday, September 15 at 6 PM at Jackman Hall.
