Janet Planet

Reviews

"First-time actor Zoe Ziegler impresses as the young girl quietly absorbing the life her single mother has created, with Julianne Nicholson equally marvelous as her loving but unknowable parent."
– SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

"Watching it feels eerily akin to running one’s fingers along a scar sustained in childhood and being magically projected back to the moment that injury was sustained."
– VARIETY

"The kind of luminous portrait of a summer where nothing happens and yet everything happens."
– VOX

"Janet Planet is a welcome rebuttal to the dominant modes of popular art – the trauma plot, or our overemphasis on narrative – if not always the most compelling to actually watch."
– GUARDIAN

Artist Bio

Director Q&A

Overview

In rural Western Massachusetts, 11-year-old Lacy spends the summer of 1991 at home, enthralled by her own imagination and the attention of her mother, Janet. As the months pass, three visitors enter their orbit, all captivated by Janet and her spellbinding nature. In her solitary moments, Lacy inhabits an inner world so extraordinarily detailed that it begins to seep into the outside world. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker captures a child's experience of time passing, and the ineffability of a daughter falling out of love with her mother, in this singularly sublime film debut.
