My review of Diane, for The Tulsa Voice. This narrative debut from documentarian Kent Jones (and executive produced by Martin Scorsese) stars Mary Kay Place in an acting showcase that won Best Narrative Feature at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival.

A review excerpt:

“Keenly observed rather than meticulously plotted, its slice-of-life episodic realism [is] a quintessential character portrait [that] follows an upstate New York retiree who…finds herself at an existential crossroads.”
