Full film details

Having discovered she has little time left to live, famed actress Frankie (Isabelle Huppert) decides to use the opportunity to bring her whole family together for one beautiful day in Sintra, Portugal. She has a plan to tie up loose ends and find joy for one last time with all her nearest and dearest. But getting people to bend to her whims won’t be so easy.

Frankie has come with her hairstylist, Ilene (Marisa Tomei), in tow, with a view to getting her hitched to her son Paul (Jérémie Renier). But Ilene’s boyfriend, Gary (Greg Kinnear), turns up with his own plans of taking his relationship up a notch.

Meanwhile, Frankie’s husband, Jimmy (Brendan Gleeson), struggles to come to terms with his wife’s impending fate. His daughter, Sylvia (Vinette Robinson), considers leaving her husband, while her daughter, Maya (Sennia Nanua), is discovering love.

Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Isabelle Huppert (Greta, Elle, Things to Come) plays the starlet, with Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei (Spider-Man: Far from Home, After Everything, The Big Short) and Golden Globe nominee Brendan Gleeson (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Paddington 2, Suffragette) among the names stepping into the roles of her family members and friends. Ira Sachs (Little Men, Love Is Strange, Keep the Lights On) directs and co-writes this emotional drama that shows one day can teach everyone lessons about life.
