Screener Squad: Diane

Diane Movie Review


Diane’s life may be getting complicated, but Diane does a great job showing that life simply and elegantly.

The biggest winner at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, Diane follows its lead character (Mary Kay Place), a woman who fills her days with busy work to help out friends, family and anyone else who needs her. Though a lot of it is altruistic, it is mostly to escape the pain she feels watching her son (Jake Lacy) struggling with an intense drug addiction. As new developments occur with her son, Diane will be forced to not only process the building frustrations she is feeling towards him but some other deep secrets that may be the true reason for her pain. Justin and Lara had no idea what to expect from this movie, but it turned out to be a huge surprise in the best possible way. Check out the review to learn why!
