Description:
Starring Willem Dafoe, Abel Ferrara's latest movie, a sincere autobiographical introspection, was shot in Ferrara's own apartment, and co-stars his real-life wife and the couple's three-year-old daughter.
Six years sober, Tommaso has fled his filmmaking career in the U.S. and settled into a routine with his wife Nikki and toddler Deedee. The couple enjoy a supportive relationship that allows Tommaso the luxury of taking Italian classes and tinkering away at a new screenplay, while Nikki tackles most of the necessary parenting duties. But there are already cracks showing in the nature of this relationship balance, as an attempt at late-night sex ends abruptly when the child starts to cry. Tommaso may finally have the family life he could never quite figure out in his drug-addled previous chapter, but that family has little use for him.

"Abel had certain fantasies, obsessions and thoughts that he wanted to explore through this story - essentially like anytime you make any movie. /.../ I wonder what the difference is for an audience that sees this film and knows certain biographical facts of Abel's life and those that don't. It is a film and it was created as a fiction." (Willem Dafoe)
