An insomniac actress living in Malibu faces the harsh realities of the industry as her age exempts her from more and more acting opportunities. Amidst this career and life crisis enters the actress’s niece, who arrives for a weekend stay and ushers in a complicated prism of emotional insecurities.
Joe Swanberg has quietly made one of the most prolific oeuvres of this young century and All the Light in the Sky is another modest yet affecting entry. Shot with minimal means, the naturalism achieved here is remarkable, and Jane Adams’s authentic turn gives the film a deeply resonant core.
