Multitalented Maggie Gyllenhaal makes her directorial debut with spot-on Ferrante film adaptation about family, career, and motherhood, on a hot Greek beach.

Leda (Olivia Colman) has taken a timeout for a solitary “workation” in Greece. The anticipated calm is disturbed when an aggressive, cocky American family from Queens takes over her little beach. The meeting with the young mother (Dakota Johnson) triggers in Leda, who twenty years before abandoned her family for a career in academia, a stream of thoughts and memories. Gyllenhaal delivers a hallucinatory, undulating, sensuous work that succeeds at portraying the complexity of Leda’s emotional life, at the same time as it delivers an exciting drama, where the threat from the mafia-like family progressively escalates. Aside from a brilliant Colman, Jessie Buckley is exceedingly impressive as the young Leda. This time the film is just as good as the book. Or better.
