My Zoe and discussion with Julie Delpy
Wednesday, Feb 24 at 8:00 PM
Dir. Julie Delpy. U.S., Canada, 2021, 93 mins. Eight years in the making, Julie Delpy’s fascinating sci-fi drama My Zoe stars Delpy as Isabelle, a recently divorced French scientist who refuses to come to terms with the potential loss of her young daughter after an accident. Leaving her grieving ex-husband (Richard Armitage), Isabelle looks to advances in medical technology for help, particularly those made by a fertility doctor (Daniel Brühl). With Delpy’s embodied performance at its center, My Zoe is a daring and original look at a parent’s deepest fear. View trailer.

“One part domestic drama, one part medical mystery, My Zoe subtly spins those two acts into its final segment: a contemporary thriller with morals and medicine on its mind.” —Indiewire
“The passion in the performance is formidable.” —Screen Daily
