Netflix released the official trailer for “Pieces of a Woman,” the first English-language film from acclaimed Hungarian filmmaker Kornél Mundruczó, starring Vanessa Kirby and Shia LaBeouf.
The film premiered in competition at the 2020 Venice Film Festival where Vanessa Kirby was awarded the Volpi Cup for Best Actress.
Pieces of a Woman also stars Ellen Burstyn, Molly Parker, Sarah Snook, Iliza Shlesinger, Benny Safdie, along with Jimmie Fails, and will premiere in theaters on December 30, 2020, followed by Netflix on January 7, 2021.
In the film, Martha (Vanessa Kirby) and Sean (Shia LaBeouf) are a Boston couple on the verge of parenthood whose lives change irrevocably when a home birth ends in unimaginable tragedy. Thus begins a yearlong odyssey for Martha, who must navigate her grief while working through fractious relationships with Sean and her domineering mother (Ellen Burstyn), along with the publicly vilified midwife (Molly Parker), whom she must face in court.
Directed by Kornél Mundruczó (White God, winner of the 2014 Prix Un Certain Regard Award), written by Kata Wéber, and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, Pieces of a Woman is a deeply personal, searing, and ultimately transcendent story of a woman learning to live alongside her loss
