Emma Dante’s The Macaluso Sisters

The Macaluso Sisters follows five orphaned sisters who rent doves as they deal with the grief and ramifications of the youngest sister’s death during a childhood adventure at the beach. The film follows the sisters—some of whom are played by multiple actresses—over the course of their lives. The Macaluso Sisters was a 2020 Venice International Film Festival Official Selection, and was released in American theaters this August.
