i am love

If we weren’t already in awe of the shape-shifting Tilda Swinton, this performance puts it over the top. First off, who knew she was so beautiful. Second, she learned Italian and Russian for the role! And finally she was a co-collaborator on the script and film. Swinton stars as the matriarch of a prosperous and handsome Italian family. Plucked from the Soviet Union as a young girl by her now husband, she has suppressed this identity except with her youngest, and favorite son who speaks Russian with her. When she embarks on an affair with her son’s best friend and business partner, all of the sun-drenched afternoons in the Italian countryside can’t prevent the inevitable tragedy that impacts the family and position she held so dear.
