FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE FEATURE NARRATIVE

BLEEDING HEART

TFF 2015 Directed by Diane Bell
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE BLEEDING HEART [TFF 2015]
Reserved yoga instructor May (Jessica Biel) lives a peaceful, clean-living life with her boyfriend. Her carefully maintained equilibrium is thrown out of balance by the arrival of her long-lost biological sister Shiva (Zosia Mamet), a street-smart yet naive young woman caught working the streets and trapped in an abusive relationship. May feels compelled to rescue the hapless Shiva but as she takes steps to pull Shiva back from the edge she finds herself increasingly drawn out of her sedate world and deeper into Shiva's chaotic one.

Diane Bell’s sophomore feature is a touching and entertaining portrait of the unspoken bond between sisters, and of how two opposites can learn something from one another. Anchored by powerful, lived-in performances by Biel and Mamet, Bleeding Heart also features a strong supporting cast that includes Edi Gathegi, Joe Anderson, Kate Burton, and Harry Hamlin.
