You Hurt My Feelings

Nicole Holofcener, USA 2023, 93’
Polish premiere
The Persian Version

Beth is working on her next novel and her husband is very supportive, though he secretly admits to a friend, that he doesn't like the book at all. As usual with Nicole Holofcener, malice and humor intertwine with genuine pain in a film where people choose to lie to avoid hurting each other.
