A glum but tenderly observed micro-portrait of a woman struggling to re-enter society after being released from prison.
A minimalist, image-based character study that is almost impossibly fragile and yet emotionally robust, Francine is a legitimate discovery.
A small gem of bleak, neorealist portraiture.
Melissa Leo plays her without inflection, giving us no instructions about what our opinion should be. It is a brave performance, an act of empathy with a sad woman.
