My Art Movie
I love coming of age movies, since they are both entertaining and thought provoking. In the My Art movie, there is a twist to this familiar genre.
The lead character is not a child heading into adulthood, but an adult woman heading into retirement age. The fascinating film shows that at any age we can turn a corner, learn and grow.
My Art stars artist Laurie Simmons in the lead role and she also wrote and directed the film. Her daughter, Lena Dunham, also has a leading role. Hence, it is personal and realistic. Parker Posey is another familiar actor in the movie.
The movie is enjoyable and just may make you reflect upon your own life, where you have been and where you are heading. It has justifiably been honored at the Tribeca and Venice film festivals.
