The Wait (L’Attesa) – Trailer #1 – Juliette Binoche

The Wait The Wait, aka L’Attesa, tells the tale of a Sicilian mother, Anna (Juliette Binoche), who lives with her son’s fiancée, Jeanne (Lou de Laâge), and refrains from telling the fiancée that her son will not return.

That’s more than I got from the trailer, which just showed a handful of lingering glances and made me think that some sort of an affair was going to develop between them. It certainly hasn’t grabbed me from this.

Directed by Piero Messina, from a script he wrote with Giacomo Bendotti, Ilaria Macchia and Andrea Paolo Massara, based on the play by Luigi Pirandello, the film also stars Giorgio Colangeli and Domenico Diele.

The Wait (L’Attesa) is out in the US on April 29th, but as of yet there’s no UK release date.
