For Diane (Mary Kay Place), everyone else comes first. Generous but with little patience for self-pity, she spends her days checking in on sick friends, volunteering at her local soup kitchen, and trying valiantly to save her troubled, drug-addicted adult son (Jake Lacy) from himself. But beneath her relentless routine of self-sacrifice, Diane is fighting a desperate internal battle, haunted by a past she can’t forget and which threatens to tear her increasingly chaotic world apart. (95 mins)

“Jones makes a promising feature debut with Diane, a naturalistic portrait of service and self-sacrifice by way of a quietly astonishing title performance by Mary Kay Place.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“The remarkable new film from the writer and director Kent Jones is in part a meditation on dying that feels wondrously alive.” – Jeanette Catsoulis, The New York Times
