USA, 2022, Director Steve Buscemi, With Tessa Thompson, Running time 96’

Steve Buscemi, an outstanding player in more than 150 movies and tv series, made his directorial debut in 1996 with Trees Lounge. Now he’s behind the camera in The Listener, written by Alessandro Camon (Academy award nominated in 2009 for Oren Moverman’s The Messenger). Beth (Tessa Thompson) is a helpline volunteer. She’s part of that little army of people that every night collect calls from those feeling lonely, empty, hopeless. During the last year, calls are multiplied, and Beth knows that there’s too much at stake: is this the night when she loses or saves someone’s life? We will finally discover why Beth put herself at the service of others, listening, understanding, and glueing the world back one piece at a time.
