Produced in collaboration with Pierpaolo Piccioli, the creative director of Valentino, the film follows New York-based, Italian-American writer Francesca (Julianne Moore), who must return to Rome to retrieve her grandmother. “As daughter confronts mother,” reads the official synopsis, “ghosts of Francesca’s youth return in a whirlwind of pain, memory, and fulfilment.”
As previously reported by Dazed, The Staggering Girl will feature a soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto, the Japanese composer and Yellow Magic Orchestra legend, whose score will arrive via Milan Records the day before the film is released.
MUBI founder and CEO, Efe Cakarel, said of his latest project: “We are extremely excited to continue working with Luca after the success of his wildly imaginative Suspiria. The Staggering Girl is an exciting new vision from one of the most thrilling filmmakers working today and we can’t wait to share this beautiful film with audiences soon.”
