If You See My Mother

Tickets on sale!

Oedipal issues are mined for full comedic effect in Nathanaël Guedj’s romantic debut feature. Thirty-year-old Max is a single ophthalmologist and mama’s boy who appears to be coping well with his mother’s death—because he still sees her and talks to her all the time. Her constant presence is comforting at first, but once Max meets and falls in love with Ohiana, his mom’s ongoing role in his life becomes problematic—to say the least. What follows is an enchanting comic fantasy marked by outstanding performances, and an honest and bittersweet depiction of the dynamics of relationships.

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)
