From award-winning filmmakers Pedro Peirano and Sebastián Silva, the team behind the Sundance Film Festival award winner “The Maid” comes “Old Cats,” a wickedly delicious chamber drama about a family marinating in its own problems.
Isadora, an octogenarian living comfortably with her husband and two cats, suddenly finds herself fighting a battle on two fronts when the onset of dementia arrives at the same time that her daughter’s attempt to scheme the landlord seems to require that Isadora sign over the lease on her Santiago apartment. Unfolding with black humor hilarity and empathy in equal measure, the film emphasizes both the confusion in Isadora’s psyche and the claustrophobia of her domestic landscape. This audience favorite was a hit at Cannes, Sundance and New York film festivals.
