Synopsis

The Looking Glass is the latest triumph from Academy Award-nominated director John Hancock (Bang the Drum Slowly, Prancer) and his longtime collaborator and wife, Dorothy Tristan (Klute, Scarecrow).

After losing her mother, troubled 13-year-old Julie (played by newcomer Grace Tarnow) comes to live with her grandmother (Tristan), who is a former star of stage and screen. Feeling trapped in her new world, Julie struggles to find peace and happiness as she and her grandmother butt heads at every turn. An unexpected discovery of their shared talent enables Julie to find her voice, her passion and, ultimately, happiness.

Reviews

"In the intimate, resonant 'Looking Glass,' an aging actress (the strikingly beautiful and very talented Ms. Tristan) mentors a troubled granddaughter (the engaging Ms. Tarnow)." - The New York Times

"A deeply felt film...Grace Tarnow's gorgeous, lilting voice carries a wisdom well beyond her years." - The Village Voice

"Moving... touching in its depiction of the complexly drawn relationship between the central female characters, with Tristan delivering a superb late-career performance and Tarnow demonstrating a winning charisma as well as strong singing chops." - The Hollywood Reporter

"A tender, well-acted drama brimming with warmth and humanism." - NYC Movie Guru

"A lyrical, haunting film. Tristan creates a complex portrait of an aging woman who is committed to impart worthwhile values and ambitions to her granddaughter, while struggling with her own mortality. Tarnow is impressively self-possessed and poised as an angry young girl who emerges from her guarded shell. It's an auspicious debut." - Film Journal International
