Movie Info

Camila (Agustina Muñoz, The Princess of France), a young Argentine theater director, travels from Buenos Aires to New York for an artist residency to work on a new Spanish translation of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Upon her arrival, she quickly realizes that her work isn't compensating for the loss of her friends and the lover she left behind. When she begins to receive a series of mysterious postcards from Danièle (Mati Diop, Claire Denis's 35 Shots of Rum), a former participant in the same residency, Camila second-guesses her artistic endeavors and begins to seek answers about her past. Hermia & Helena mingles actors from Matías Piñeiro's Buenos Aires repertory with stalwarts of New York's independent film scene (Keith Poulson, Dustin Guy Defa, Dan Sallitt). It is a film of dead ends and new beginnings, navigating amorous detours across hemispheres and languages, in which the words of Shakespeare clash with the entanglements of modern, digital life.

  • For discerning moviegoers, the affably disorienting "Hermia & Helena" might just be the right kind of midsummer night's dreaminess.

    July 13, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Hermia & Helena presents a unique anomaly -- it's able to capture life at its most low-key but still manages to exemplify style over substance.

    May 26, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Part of the charm of Hermia & Helena is in the way it freely and randomly plays with form, employing luxuriantly slow dissolves, unexpected snatches of superimposed text, and even a black-and-white film-within-the-film.

    May 26, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • A peculiar film, one both steely and delicate.

    May 25, 2017 | Full Review…
  • There are a few different potential films within Hermia & Helena - a Shakespeare adaptation, a tale of romantic relationships, a tale of family - but the totality proves a sunny and affable literary collage.

    May 25, 2017 | Full Review…
  • By positioning Shakespeare within a chatty tale of young adulthood - and giving it a feminist slant - Pieiro proves the vitality of the material without becoming subservient to it.
