|Film director Margherita (Margherita Buy) and her actor Barry Huggins (John Turturro) have an on-set discussion about his inability to remember his lines in Nanni Moretti's Mia Madre to be released this March.|
Mia Madre is shot from the point-of-view of an Italian film director, portrayed by Margherita Buy, who is in the midst of making a large-budget movie when she learns that her mother is dying of heart disease. Mr. Moretti plays her brother Giovanni, and John Turturro has a supporting role as an American actor in Margherita's film. In my interview with Mr. Moretti, he is quite candid about the fact that he wishes he had been more like his character, the devoted son Giovanni, when he discovered his own mother was dying during the making of We Have a Pope (2011). Mia Madre will be in theaters in March.
