May December

Todd Haynes

May December is the new film from Todd Haynes, director of Carol and Far From Heaven. The film follows married couple Gracie and Joe Atherton-Yoo (Julianne Moore and Charles Melton) whose 23-year age gap sparked a notorious tabloid romance that gripped the nation two decades ago.

"Another impressive film from Haynes."

Cut to modern day, and their marriage comes under renewed strain when Hollywood actress Elizabeth Berry (Natalie Portman) comes to spend time with the family to better understand Gracie, who she will be playing in a film about the scandal. No stranger to the conventions of melodrama, it is another impressive film from Haynes.
