Your thoughts on this movie......

"The picture revolves around an American filmmaking couple who retreat to the island for the summer to each write screenplays for their upcoming films in an act of pilgrimage to the place that inspired Bergman. As the summer and their screenplays advance, the lines between reality and fiction start to blur against the backdrop of the Island's wild landscape."

The film is set on the island of Faro, home of legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman.

“Eden” director Mia Hansen-Love’s new film enlists “Phantom Thread” breakout Vicky Krieps, who replaced the briefly attached Greta Gerwig, along with Mia Wasikowska on this Swedish-shot film about an American couple who are both artists who head to the a remote Swedish island to take part in an Ingmar Bergman celebration event – hoping to be inspired to finish writing their new movie. But over the course of the summer their relationship starts to fissure as the line between their lives and the fiction they are writing starts to blur. Sounds rather “Clouds of Sils Maria”-esque, and it has enlisted producer Charles Gillibert (“Mustang,” “Personal Shopper”).
