Our take

A sensual psychodrama set under a fierce Greek sun, this directorial debut from Maggie Gyllenhaal is a thrilling adaptation of the novel by Elena Ferrante. With a mercurial Olivia Colman leading a remarkable ensemble, Gyllenhaal forges a prickly modern myth on the primal obligations of motherhood.
