RUNNING FROM CRAZY|
Directed by Barbara Kopple
USA, 2013, 100 minutes, documentary
This heart-wrenching film manages the tensions in its subject in a fruitful, illuminating and moving way. Mariel Hemingway lays bare her inherited legacy: fame and mental illness, and the way she was left to clean up the "mess" incurred in her alcohol-fueled and chaotic childhood home. An insighful study of how people with a family history of psychological damage confront a foreboding mirror, whether or not it reflects a literary heritage and great bone structure.
Meet the Filmmaker: Director Barbara Kopple is unable to attend. Taking her place will be Editor Michael Culyba.
"Using home movies and other footage, Kopple provides a discomfiting portrait of a family's deep-seated dysfunction." Ian Thompson, The Telegraph
"There is much here of interest to aficionados of the great author as well as to those curious about the complicated relationship between sisters Mariel and the late Margaux." Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
