Movie Review: MAY DECEMBER


Director: Todd Haynes
Starring: Julianne Moore, Natalie Portman, Charles Melton, D.W. Moffett, Gabriel Chung, Elizabeth Yu, Cory Michael Smith

Julianne Moore and Todd Haynes have always made for an exciting actor/director relationship. Their latest film, May December, is inspired by tabloid headlines but goes much deeper than that. A “May December” romance is oftentimes used to describe a relationship or marriage between two people of significant age difference. In May December, Julianne Moore plays Gracie who is married to the much younger, Joe (Melton). Eighteen years prior they had a torrid affair rocking their community after they were caught having sex in a pet store. She was 36 and he was 13 and in the seventh grade. In current day, their lives are quite normal raising their children trying to live a normal suburban life. They’re about to be empty nesters with their youngest kids set to graduate high school. That normalcy is upended as a TV movie is set to be made about their relationship. Natalie Portman plays Elizabeth, an actress who arrives in town hoping to study Gracie and learn everything about their relationship and the lives that were impacted. Now in select theaters and will be streaming on Netflix December 1
