Tomasso Trailer

“The camera stays close to Dafoe for nearly every moment of the movie and he brings a compelling vibrancy to the screen.” – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times

ABOUT THE FILM

Abel Ferrara’s first dramatic feature since 2014’s Pasolini reteams the filmmaker and his frequent lead Willem Dafoe, who delivers a career-best performance as the title character, an older American expat living in Rome with his young wife and their daughter. Disoriented by his past misgivings and subsequent, unexpected blows to his self-esteem, Tommaso wades through this late chapter of his life with an increasingly impaired grasp on reality as he prepares for his next film. Tommaso is easily Ferrara and Dafoe’s most personal and engrossing collaboration to date, a delicately surrealistic work of auto-fiction marked by the keen sensitivity of two consummate artists.
