With a trifecta of stunning performances from Natalie Portman, Julianne Moore and Charles Melton, Todd Haynes' (Carol) May December effortlessly combines classical melodrama with contemporary preoccupations of celebrity and scandal.

From the outside, Gracie (Moore) and Joe (Melton) are the perfect suburban couple. That is, if you don’t take into account the fact that their relationship was a tabloid sensation 20 years ago.

When Elizabeth (Portman), an actor, arrives at their home to research for a role in a film based on Gracie, it becomes clear that the couple’s relationship isn’t as strong as they’d like to believe. As the truth begins to unspool, and Elizabeth immerses herself in her role, it becomes clear that she’s not the only one acting. What is the truth to Gracie and Joe’s relationship? And is Elizabeth’s presence complicating things even further?

"This is by far Haynes’ funniest film to date, with shades of Almodóvar in its dramatic zooms and heightened domestic tension." Little White Lies
