American Woman

Réalisé par Semi Chellas
Canada / États-Unis, 2019 (fiction, 87 minutes, couleurs, anglais)
Autre titre : « Femme américaine »

Description du film [en anglais] :
« A political activist (Hong Chau) helps take care of a group of America's most wanted fugitives—including a well-known, recently radicalized heiress—in this fictionalized reimagining of the Patty Hearst affair. [...] Drawing on Susan Choi's novel, Chellas' film takes the perspective of Jenny (Chau), a dedicated activist who has been living underground for years. Recruited by a shady publisher, Jenny is tasked with keeping a group of revolutionaries off the grid while they write a book for him. Among them is Pauline (Gadon), like Hearst a wealthy convert to revolution who might be in over her head. Tensions with her comrades Juan (John Gallagher Jr.) and Yvonne (Lola Kirke) threaten to explode, and Jenny is responsible for keeping this volatile group together and hidden from the Feds. With outstanding work from cinematographer Greg Middleton and composer Lesley Barber, Chellas gives her film the look and feel of a classic political thriller. [...] »
