All the Light in the Sky
With Joe Swanberg in person
Dir. Joe Swanberg. 2012, 79 mins. Digital projection. With Jane Adams, Sophia Takal, Kent Osborne. A 45-year-old actress whiles away the days at her Malibu beach house, paddle-boarding and playing host to a visiting niece, as she sees her job offers dwindle and tries to stave off a looming midlife crisis. Jane Adams is the film’s irresistible center of gravity, offering up an extraordinarily open, soul-baring performance as a woman confronting middle age. Swanberg, meanwhile, gives serious consideration to a new thematic concern—global warming and environmental destruction—that lends the film an unexpected and poignant universality.
