TOMMASU

a film by Abel Ferrara

Nationally simulcast live Q&A 

with Willem Dafoe and Abel Ferrara

Abel Ferrara's first dramatic feature since 2014's Pasolini reteams the filmmaker and his frequent lead Willem Dafoe, who delivers a career-best performance as the title character, an older American expat living in Rome with his young wife and their daughter. Disoriented by his past misgivings and subsequent, unexpected blows to his self-esteem, Tommaso wades through this late chapter of his life with an increasingly impaired grasp on reality as he prepares for his next film. Tommaso is easily Ferrara and Dafoe's most personal and engrossing collaboration to date, a delicately surrealistic work of autofiction marked by the keen sensitivity of two consummate artists. - Film at Lincoln Center  

"A gripping look at the process of escaping to a better life, only to find that the old one follows along at every turn... Manages to feel rough and risky while somehow sensitive at the same time, like the best of them." - Eric Kohn, Indiewire

"Willem Dafoe is one of our greatest actors... Tommaso feels alive." - Owen Gleiberman, Variety
