Jane Adams stars as an actress living in Malibu who faces harsh realities of the industry as her age exempts her from more and more acting opportunities. Amidst this career and life crisis enters the actress’s niece, played by Sophia Takal, who arrives for a weekend stay and ushers in a complicated prism of emotional insecurities. Can the actress confront her fears, navigate complicated relationships, and figure out how to navigate mid-life in Hollywood?

You, the Living (2009)
Available on Fandor: April 25 | Director: Roy Andersson
Acclaimed Swedish director Roy Andersson takes an amusing look at a delightfully eccentric assortment of characters.
