My Days of Mercy
Directed by Tali Shalom-Ezer. With Elliot Page, Kate Mara, Amy Seimetz, Charlie Shotwell. The daughter of a man on death row falls in love with a woman on the opposing side of her family’s political cause.
The second show in a couple weeks where Kate Mara plays a harlot that ruins someone else’s life through the power of her sexuality, previously a younger man, this time as someone on the opposing side of a protest line. I’m pretty sure that ‘My Days of Mercy’ came out first, but I got to it second. There was also several years between the two, so it’s just happenstance that I happened to watch them in such proximity.
Regardless, both Kate Mara and Ellen Page were fantastic and there’s some real good discussion starters here.
