With “My Zoe” Julie Delpy brings together an intriguing cast to tell an emotionally charged story of grief, loss, and a mother’s attempt to cope. The drama is written and directed by Delpy who also plays the leads role. “My Zoe” first showed at the 2019 Toronto Independent Film Festival and it’s first trailer debuted a few months ago. But now we have an October release date and I like the looks of it so far.
Delpy plays Isabelle, a mother raising her daughter Zoe with her bitter ex-husband (Richard Armitage). When Zoe tragically dies Isabelle is shattered and unable to accept the death of her beloved daughter. So against all reason, the devastated yet determined mother seeks out a Russian fertility specialist ￼(Daniel Brühl) and his wife (Gemma Arterton) believing they can help bring her daughter back. It’s heavy subject matter approached from a very unique angle.
“My Zoe” is set to release October 5th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.￼
