Abel Ferrara’s first dramatic feature since 2014’s Pasolini reteams the filmmaker and his frequent lead Willem Dafoe, who delivers a career-best performance as the title character, an older American expat living in Rome with his young wife and their daughter. Disoriented by his past misgivings and subsequent, unexpected blows to his self-esteem, Tommaso wades through this late chapter of his life with an increasingly impaired grasp on reality as he prepares for his next film. Tommaso is easily Ferrara and Dafoe’s most personal and engrossing collaboration to date, a delicately surrealistic work of autofiction marked by the keen sensitivity of two consummate artists. In English and Italian with subtitles. (116 mins)

“Critic’s Pick! Crackle[s] with ideas and empathy, as Ferrara’s best work always does.” – Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
“Manages to feel rough and risky while somehow sensitive at the same time, like the best of them.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire
“A sweet, honest character study of a man struggling with guilt and anxiety. Dafoe is incredible.” – Tom Bond, Little White Lies
