Where’d You Go, Bernadette

Where’d You Go, Bernadette

Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett stars in director Richard Linklater‘s latest, based on Maria Semple‘s runaway best-seller, WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE. Former architect Bernadette Fox (Blanchett) seems to have it all — a beautiful home in Seattle, a successful and loving husband, and a brilliant teenage daughter who’s about to attend boarding school. When Bernadette suddenly disappears without a trace, her concerned family sets off on an exciting adventure to solve the mystery of where she might have gone.  Former architect Bernadette Fox seems to have it all — a beautiful home in Seattle, a successful and loving husband, and a brilliant teenage daughter who’s about to attend boarding school. When Bernadette suddenly disappears without a trace, her concerned family sets off on an exciting adventure to solve the mystery of where she might have gone. When architect-turned-recluse Bernadette Fox goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica, her 15-year-old daughter Bee goes on a quest with Bernadette’s husband to find her. Also starring Billy Crudup, Judy Greer.

“Cate Blanchett plays Bernadette with her customary elegance, erudition, and acerbic wit.” (Rolling Stone Magazine)

“A cautionary tale about putting creativity aside after kids.” (NPR)

“While other directors might have balked at the idea (or the commercial prospects) of a bizarre family comedy about a rich architect whose pent-up mental energy turns her into a manic time-bomb, Linklater probably thought it was the most natural thing he could ever hope to make.” (IndieWire)
