Twenty years after their notorious tabloid romance gripped the nation, Gracie (Julianne Moore) and her husband Joe (Charles Melton) — twenty-three years her junior — brace themselves for their twins to graduate from high school. When Hollywood actress Elizabeth (Natalie Portman) comes to spend time with the family to better understand Gracie, who she’ll be playing in a film, family dynamics unravel under the pressure of the outside gaze. Joe starts to confront the reality of life as an empty-nester at thirty-six, and as Elizabeth and Gracie study each other, the similarities and differences between the two women begin to ebb and flow.

An exploration of truth, storytelling, and the difficulties (or impossibility) of fully understanding another person, May December swaddles its difficult fact-based story in campy humor, and is a seductively discomfiting watch from master filmmaker Todd Haynes. Featuring fantastic performances from its lead trio, soft gauzy cinematography, and a biting look at how actresses and filmmakers strive to represent “real life.”
