Interview: Zoe Cassavetes Talks 'Day Out Of Days,' Anti-Heroines, And The State of Hollywood Filmmaking

23 June 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Zoe Cassavetes’ second feature film “Day Out of Days” debuted at the Los Angeles Film Festival last week —it's an appropriate venue for the film, which is about navigating Hollywood as a 40 year old actress. The movie is a tremendous showcase for Cassavetes’ co-writer and star, Alexia Landeau, who plays Mia Roarke as flawed, often unsympathetic, but ultimately human, and worth rooting for. Mia turns to searching for meaning in her work after finding her personal life to be lacking in what she expected at her age (marriage, kids), with her career floundering too. Our review called the film “the perfect depiction of the easy come, easy go nature of stardom and worth in Hollywood,” and opined that “Cassavetes deftly explores these issues with a great deal of nuance and an unflinching eye.” We talked on the phone with Cassavetes from her Paris home last week about the intricacies of the film, »

Laff Review: Zoe Cassavetes' 'Day Out Of Days' Is A Searing Indictment Of Hollywood's Treatment Of Women

17 June 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Zoe Cassavetes’ 2007 debut feature “Broken English,” starring Parker Posey, is an astutely realized portrait of a woman struggling to find herself while searching for love. It’s an underrated picture, and eight years has been far too long between features for Cassavetes, who debuted her second film “Day Out of Days,” at the Los Angeles Film Festival this week. While following a similar theme of a woman adrift and searching for meaning, this film replaces work in place of love as a self-worth defining element. For actresses in Hollywood, their work isn’t always in their control, due to sexism, ageism and other outside influences, and Cassavetes deftly explores these issues with a great deal of nuance and an unflinching eye.

Days Go By: Cassavetes Returns with Industry Commentary

It’s a tale as old as cinema itself, the dismissive and apathetic attitude towards ageing women in a youth obsessed, commodified film industry. And yet, director Zoe Cassavetes manages to make her own worthwhile entry with Day Out of Days, a project conceived, developed, and co-written with lead actress Alexia Landeau. As impossibly difficult as the landscape is for an actress, the female director suffers comparable obstacles in sustaining a lucrative filmmaking career, and it’s been eight years since Cassavetes made her stunningly eloquent debut with 2007’s Broken English, a film featuring Parker Posey in a career best turn. Whatever the cause of the hiatus (though she’s turned out several short films in the interim), this sophomore feature is a more than welcome return from a director with a particular knack for capturing characters at a difficult crossroads.

There's at least one name you might know in the Los Angeles Film Festival's Muse lineup: Zoe Cassavetes, daughter of John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands, who makes her first film since 2007 breakout "Broken English" with "Day Out of Days." The Hollywood-set comedy follows a middling actress, now 40, who struggles to navigate the cutthroat world of Tinseltown while trying to relaunch her career. When given an unusual chance to return to the spotlight, the film takes strange, humiliating turns. "Day Out of Days" premieres Sunday night at Laff. The cast includes Alexia Landeau, Eddie Izzard, Melanie Griffith, Cheyenne Jackson, Alessandro Nivola, Brooke Smith, Bellamy Young, Vincent Kartheiser, Matt Letscher and Josh Stamberg. It is currently seeking Us distribution. »
