About the Movie

MEDEAS is an intimate portrait of a rural family’s inner lives and their relationship to a harsh and shifting landscape. Ennis, a stern, Hard-working dairy farmer struggles to maintain control of his family and surrounding environment, while his wife, Christina, retreats into herself, progressively disconnecting from him an their five children. As tensions increase, each character must confront their yearnings and anxieties, culminating in a dangerous conflict between control and freedom, intimacy, and alienation. A journey into the unpredictable boundaries of human behavior, MEDEAS explores the desperate lengths people are driven to by love and self-preservation.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A slow, mesmeric slide into heartbreak and horror, "Medeas," the ravishing first feature from the Italian director Andrea Pallaoro, effortlessly conveys a family's disintegration with few words and even fewer miscalculations. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jan 15, 2015

Fresh: Though it's tempting to dismiss the film's strong visuals (...) there are a million other ways to be bored or underwhelmed at the cinema. This one at least creates a little space to dream. – Violet Lucca, Film Comment Magazine, Jan 16, 2015

Rotten: At the end, I felt suspended between "so beautiful" and "so what." (Sorry for lifting your phrase, Paul Simon.) – Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com, Jan 16, 2015

Fresh: With limited dialogue and long takes, Medeas quietly builds to inevitable tragedy, exploring the darkest corners of desire, jealously, and unforgivable transgressions. – Kiva Reardon, AV Club, Jan 15, 2015
