News from Home ★★★★

It’s somber, but as warm and comfortable as a hug after along time away. The juxtaposition of spaces either empty or full of strangers, along with her mother’s words pleading her to write more and asking when she’ll see her again just has so much power to it. I think the emotion I feel most from Akerman’s films is weariness, and she captures it beautifully.
