Valeria Golino, 2013
Italy | Italian with English subtitles | Format: DCP | 97 minutes
Dinner and a Movie available at evening screenings, Monday - Thursday.
Her real name is Irene, but to her clients she is “Honey.” Operating from a seaside community outside of Rome, Honey provides peace to the terminally ill—who no longer wish to live—via a powerful barbiturate she smuggles in from Mexico. When one of her clients is revealed not to be sick but just tired of living, Honey resolves to stop his suicide. Eschewing the sermonizing one expects to find in similarly themed “issues” pictures, this thoughtful character study embraces the complexity of its world and inhabitants. The directorial debut of Italian actress Valeria Golino (Rain Man, Leaving Las Vegas) premiered at Un Certain Regard in last year’s Cannes Film Festival.
