Showing Up

Art imitates life.

Filmmaker Kelly Reichardt continues her pretty incredible cinematic track record with frequent collaborator / muse, actress Michelle Williams, with their latest effort, SHOWING UP (the pair worked together on indie staples including FIRST COW, WENDY AND LUCY, and MEEK’S CUTOFF).

In this vibrant and captivatingly funny portrait of art and craft, Williams stars as Lizzy, a sculptor preparing to open a new show must balance her creative life with the daily dramas of family and friends. With Hong Chau, Judd Hirsch, Andre Benjamin.

“That this moody, woozy character study falls closer to the “masterpiece” side of the fence isn’t a surprise, considering it comes from Kelly Reichardt and Michelle Williams, one of the best filmmaker-actor duos of the last quarter century.” (Rolling Stone)

“The film is a testament to my favorite kind of character, the ones who go about their lives in a one-foot-in-front-of-the-other manner.” (Arizona Republic)

“Brilliantly nuanced and meticulously observed.” (FilmWeek / NPR)

“The on-the-surface modesty of Showing Up is a kind of sorcery. It’s in the days afterward, when you’ve left its spell and gone back to the world, that its essence is more likely to take shape…” (Time Magazine)
