    Press

    "A meditation on dying that feels wondrously alive (...) An act of cinematic bravery."

    The New York Times

    "Jones turns the story of a middle-aged woman into a shattering portrait of resilience - and a major work of art."

    Rolling Stone

    "Mary Kay Place gives the performance of her career (...) You may not encounter a more achingly human character in a movie this year."

    Best known as a critic and programmer, Kent Jones worked as Martin Scorsese’s archivist. His esteemed publications like Film Comment, Cahiers du Cinema, and The New York Times earned him a position at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. He also edited a book of essays on the films of Olivier Assayas, co-wrote a wild Arnaud Desplechin movie that premiered in competition at Cannes, and then agreed to return to the Film Society for the prestigious role as director of programming at the New York Film Festival. Since then, Jones made the documentary HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT. DIANE is his first narrative feature which premiered at Tribeca FF and Locarno Festival in 2018.
