The Mother

A sleek, Newyork-lofty adaptation of Florian Zeller’s play, translated into English by Christopher Hampton. Yes, it was funny and dark and drunkenly depressed to the point of self-destruction, but all I remember is Hupper’s magnetic performance – and that slutty red mini dress. I remember thinking how is it possible for this tiny slender figure to exude such fierce energy. Even those who don’t particularly care about her style, would have no choice than simply bow to her charisma.
