Casting a novelistic eye for his second film, Kenneth Lonergan elicited a stunning performance from Anna Paquin as an Upper West Side teen whose crises of conscience and identity reverberate through her actress mother (J. Smith-Cameron) and post-9/11 NYC itself. Shot in 2005, editing-room conflicts led to a minimal 2011 release of one cut; Lonergan’s preferred cut, 36 minutes longer, deepens perspective on other characters and crucially reveals a shared mother/daughter experience.
