Description

A WOMAN, A PART marks the feature-length debut of celebrated filmmaker and artist Elisabeth Subrin ("Shulie," "The Caretakers”). It’s an astute critique of how women are portrayed in media, the ways in which personal relationships intertwine with and shape the creative process, and the difficulty of change — all set against a gentrifying New York City. Siff is a revelation as Anna, movingly portraying a woman at a crossroads who exists in different versions to different people. The role of Kate offers a major showcase to Cara Seymour, who shines as her conflicted, wary friend, struggling to stay sober and create a life for herself outside the spotlight. And Ortiz is sensitive and sexy as an artist hoping to regain past glories while navigating a marriage in crisis.
